About us

How we work

The Institute for the Future of Work works at the intersection of government, industry and civil society to create the systemic change that’s needed to transform the future of work. We practice and support partnership working to shape a fairer future through better work.

We use a range of approaches, including machine learning, expert groups and traditional research methods. Our pioneering social policy innovation accelerator (SPIA) convenes diverse voices working in partnership to tackle challenges in ways that keep pace with the speed of technological change. Take a look at our SPIA Toolkit.

To deliver our mission we:

Build evidence

Offer insight

Connect people

We connect people with different perspectives to enrich understanding and ideas.

Solve problems

We solve problems by designing innovative and actionable solutions tailored to a project.

Drive change

We drive change by engaging policy and decision-makers to share and scale transformation solutions.
