This report marks the launch of the Pissarides Review into the Future of Work and Wellbeing, a collaboration between the Institute for the Future of Work, Imperial College London and Warwick Business School.
The Pissarides Review is a three-year programme of work, informed and supported by an expert Steering Group and funded by the Nuffield Foundation.
The purpose of the Review is to build a better future of work through an improved understanding of the impacts of automation on work, society and the economy. Building on the theory of labour market frictions by Professor Sir Christopher Pissarides, the Review will take a multi-disciplinary approach to examine how, and to what extent, workers are exposed to market ‘frictions’ related to their skills, location and information about the changing world of work.
The Review seeks to create impact across academia, policy and practice by developing new approaches to measure, understand and manage labour market transitions in the UK. It aims to ensure that everyone, whatever their background, can develop their capabilities in ways that will enable them to flourish as the world of work transforms.
