Chapter 11: Contemporary work and employment and the productivity puzzle
This chapter is concerned with exploring the relationship between contemporary work and employment and productivity. It aims to highlight the centrality of the workplace and employment relations for understanding the productivity puzzle. In doing so it explores four aspects of current workplace dynamics, notably: management practice and missing voice; the growth of non-standard work; the performance implications of insecure work; and finally, job quality and the future of work. It concludes by emphasising the importance of engaging with all stakeholders and interests in organisations to secure greater productivity outcomes.
