Centre for Sustainable Work and Employment Futures

The Centre for Sustainable Work and Employment Futures was established in 2013 within the College of Social Sciences to position the University of Leicester at the forefront of analytical and policy research on work and employment futures.

Aims

  • To shape and improve work and employment policy analysis
  • Inform practice by bringing together a team of networked researchers to produce systematic theory and a secure evidence base to address existing knowledge gaps.

Research

Research is initially concentrated on six inter-connected themes;

  • Age, productivity and employment change
  • Financial capitalism and employment relations
  • Labour markets: structural change and transitions
  • Workplace industrial relations in the shadow of recession
  • Shrinking the state: the shifting boundaries between public and private sectors
  • Globalisation, technology and new international divisions of labour
