Labour, Employment and Wages

The world of work is undergoing a massive transformation, driven by technological innovation, globalisation, and demographic changes. The changing labour market is affecting the nature of work, types of jobs and contradicting arrangements, and it affects how we address inequalities and social mobility. Covid-19 has impacted some sectors and workers disproportionately, while also accelerating the take-up of remote working across the office-based and service sectors.

At the National Institute of Economic and Social Research, we have a strong tradition of research informing labour market policies and practices, by exploring employment and wages, and the experiences of workers and employers.
