Responsible Business Seminar: Sustainable Futures

Northumbria University


Launch of the Sustainable Working Futures Research Group: What is the future of work?

Refreshments will be available from 16:30 in the Fourth Floor Corporate Hub. The lecture will take place at 17:00 in lecture theatre 402.

Social, demographic, economic, technological and political trends are transforming the nature and meaning of work, with implications for skills, workforce planning, diversity and inclusion. Career patterns are rapidly shifting, with people changing jobs, organisations and occupations more readily and more frequently. 

In this seminar, researchers from Newcastle Business School will consider the challenge of securing sustainable work futures, which enable people thrive and flourish, against this transforming context.  We will debate and discuss of the implications for responsible business practice, economic growth, and HR policy and practice.
