About us


We research and develop practical ways to improve work and working lives. We do that by understanding how work is changing and how we can make the future better – in the face of technological change and economic turmoil.

We believe that bringing people together with different perspectives and experiences enriches our understanding and ideas. Through this collaborative approach, we aim to create innovative, practical and inclusive solutions.

We work to shape policy and decision-making in government and business, building approaches that put people first.
