The IFOW Good Work Charter

The Good Work Charter is an organising framework for policy-orientation and practice designed to encourage commitment and fresh-thinking from government and business about the fundamental components of good work and how to protect these components through the new industrial revolution. We hope it will encourage people and institutions to prioritise the creation of future good work, facilitate a broader dialogue about the social and economic conditions needed for future good work, and lead to practical solutions. National government may consider the Charter in developing industrial strategy across sectors including sectors such as retail and transport, which are poorly paid and undergoing significant disruption. Businesses may use the Charter as a checklist when designing or applying new technology, and responsible employers may adopt it as they introduce the technology.
