Governments all over the developed world are answering employment problems with what we believe are growth models designed for the industrial revolution.Please do spare anything from £5 upwards, if you can. The Government clearly does not have a grip on unemployment and we need to bring together the best new ideas on work and employment, where we can have a proper debate and discussion, and actually evolve the policies.
We believe the implications of our research into the future of work will extend beyond the labour market to education, learning, human resources, public services, families, and government budgets. We have completed some research already and interviewed people like JP Ranganswami, Indy Johar, Frank Duffy, Anna Coote, Colette Fagan, Anne-Marie McEwan, and Benjamin Hunnicutt. We have read widely as well: studies on the French 35 hour week, social insurance policies in Denmark and Germany, Kellogg’s 24 work week, to new approaches to digital learning in work. We have more research to do and more interviews to complete, but at this point, we’ve definitely got a pretty good idea of what the story is. We just need some time to put it all together!
We think this a project well worth backing, and it will put you close to some of the most exciting emergent ideas around the future of work. Both Mamading and I have personally put in. Just click on the sponsume link and it will take you to page where you can sponsor!
