This cutting-edge Research Agenda takes a hard look at workplace innovation practices that are vital for dealing with the global disruptive changes we currently face. It unpacks the ways in which organisations can become more sustainable, not only for value creation and profitability but also for sustainable employability and employee skill development.

Exploring the ways in which workplace innovation provided necessary safeguards to deal with technological and environmental change, chapters provide a state-of-the art discussion of the topic in light of digital disruption and the Green Revolution. These areas of concern do not beg for one overall solution but for more resilient organisations in general. Bringing together the most renowned scholars in the field of workplace innovation from Europe, Australia and Asia, this Research Agenda looks at how we can learn to tackle these issues on an international level.

With invaluable insight into workplace innovation spanning companies and individuals, nations and regions this Research Agenda explores the results of workplace innovation practices in very different global contexts. It will be of great value to researchers, policy-makers, practitioners, consultants and students of workplaces, organisations, human behaviour and digital transitions.
