Challenges for the organizing of work and for research – a new book

 

2016-09-30 12.24.43

Now published: Our new book in Swedish ”På jakt efter framtidens arbete” is now published and may be downloaded here. Translation of the title:  ”On the hunt for work of the future – Challenges for the organizing of work and for research”.

Twenty-eight authors write on research policy and the need for a really work-oriented worklife research, with a focus on which work organizations contribute to decent work, health and human development,  rather than how to cure individuals already ill from working. Good and productive work is a theme. Work-oriented worklife research does also study management but from the perspective: what are the consequences for work and workers, rather than as in business studies -how can workers best be controlled and managed. Macro issues, power and industrial relations are crucial aspects,and not only the level of the individual.

You may download below an English version of the table of contents and a separate document with abstracts in English of all the twenty-four chapters. The book may be downloaded here and at the publisher, Tankesmedjan Tiden, and you may also buy the printed book.
