The Future of Work and Employment

Edited by Adrian Wilkinson, Professor and Michael Barry, Professor, Department of Employment Relations and Human Resources, Griffith University, Australia

This cutting-edge book charts the latest ideas and concepts in employment relations research. Mapping out the intellectual boundaries of the field, The Future of Work and Employment outlines the key research and policy outcomes for work and employment in the age of digitisation and artificial intelligence.

‘‘The book The Future of Work and Employment edited by Australian scholars Adrian Wilkinson and Michael Barry recently caught my eye. It tackles a massive subject and takes that subject seriously. It also provides a wide range of perspectives on the title, and a variety of insights into how your career might soon be affected. If your work calls for a deeper understanding of any of these topics, this book provides a useful resource.’
– Michael Arthur, Forbes

‘Many talk about the future of work. This volume refreshingly replaces grand pronouncements, sweeping generalizations, and a narrow focus on technology and the gig economy with thoughtful, nuanced reflections on a wide range of challenges. Taken together, this collection of stimulating chapters results in a robust research agenda that should help define the future of the future of work.'
– John W. Budd, University of Minnesota, US, and author of The Thought of Work
