Unique in New Zealand, the Future of Work Programme is an AUT Business School initiative, adminstered by the NZ Work Research Institute. The programme addresses the challenge of rapid workplace change, driven by new digital technologies, globalisation, environmental pressures, changing workforce demographics and new forms of social interaction and organising.
The scope of the programme is broad yet distinctive, concerned with people, work (paid and unpaid), learning and technology, and encompasses economic, environmental and social wellbeing. The Programme involves collaboration between research groups and key individuals from across AUT University. Solving real-world problems by bringing science and business together is central to the programme goals.
