Employment Outlook on the Future of Work

Employment Outlook on the Future of Work

Thursday 25th April  – Work Foundation, 21 Palmer Street, London, SW1H 0AD

We are delighted to host the launch of the OECD’s new report at the Work Foundation.



What is the future of work?  The 2019 edition of the OECD Employment Outlook addresses this question by analysing how technology, globalisation, population ageing and other megatrends are transforming the labour market, generating new employment opportunities but also putting many traditional jobs at risk. The report offers a detailed discussion of what governments, business and workers’ representatives can do to prepare for the future and curb the widening disparities between those who benefit from the transition to a new world of work and those who are left behind.


To find out more about the analysis in this report and how the UK compares with other countries, you are warmly invited to the launch of the OECD Employment Outlook 2019 at the Work Foundation on April 25. The launch will bring together policy makers, academics, employers’ and workers’ representatives, to stimulate an open debate on how to promote a better future of work for all.
