Crisis or opportunity? Evidence session on the future of wellbeing and work
Tue 28 February 2017, 17:30 – 19:00 GMT
The UK’s labour market is rapidly changing.
Data collected by the New Economics Foundation indicates that the ‘gig economy’ has seen a surge since 2010, growing by 28% in the UK and 72% in London. Meanwhile predictions about the impact of artificial intelligence and new technologies on our labour markets abound.
Join us in Parliament to explore the implications of these changes on the quality of our everyday lives and how we can use these developments to enhance rather than threaten wellbeing.
The New Economics Foundation is delighted to invite you to an All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) seminar on Wellbeing and The Future of Work, taking place on Tue, 28th Feb 2016 from 17.30-19:00 in the Boothroyd Room in Portcullis House, Westminster.
The Wellbeing APPG is organised by The New Economics Foundation and aims to provide Parliament with insight into the topic area from a range of experts.
Giving evidence in this session will be:
Kate Bell, Head of Economic and Social Affairs TUC
Norman Pickavance, former retail executive and writer on human resources
Yaseen Aslam, Minicab Driver and representative of United Private Hire Drivers (UPHD)
Annie Quick, Subject Lead Inequality and Wellbeing, New Economics Foundation
Ursula Huws, Professor of Labour and Globalisation at Hertfordshire Business School
The discussion will be chaired by Jon Cruddas MP who is also Visiting Professor at the Leicester Centre for Sustainable Work and Employment Futures.
We hope that you can join us for what promises to be a stimulating discussion.
