about

Labor market, work and economic development policy visions in many developed countries have been dominated in recent years by a fixation on skills. However, skill and skill development alone is not enough to harmonize societies, transform economies, galvanize organizations, and fulfil individuals.
  
This book discusses the impact of government policy, other institutional arrangements, organizational practices, collective and individual behavior, on things of importance to many of us: work, employment, pay, work environments, learning, participation and voice. It is a unique volume of insights from leading researchers and research centers in the UK, Australia and New Zealand.
