Working Futures

Policy@Manchester's new online report Working Futures provides evidence and ideas to shape the future of work in the UK.

The nature of work is changing at a rapid pace. The COVID-19 pandemic, an ageing workforce and increasing automation have all contributed to a shifting policy landscape for work and employment.

Our expert articles in this report explore the future of work against the backdrop of levelling up and the need to balance productivity, innovation and economic growth with access to fair employment and working conditions, alongside the drive for equity, opportunity and decent working conditions. Working Futures makes evidence led recommendations from The University of Manchester’s world leading research.
