This work is the English edition of what has become widely known as ""The Supiot Report"" - a far-reaching look at the changing nature of work, employment and labour institutions, and systems of regulation and welfare. It takes as its starting point the profound changes that took place in the underlying employment relationship and associated human resource practices over the last 20 years of the 20th century. These developments are placed in their economic, social, institutional and legal contexts. Competitive pressures on firms, the search for greater efficiency and effectiveness in the delivery of public services, the changing role of women in society, and the desire for greater choice on the part of individuals are all important motives for change. The legal framework and the structures and organizations which represent the interests of workers and employers must respond to these changes. Drawing on illustrations from a number of European countries, the book suggests that the legal framework should encourage greater collaboration in the workplace, particularly over issues such as training.
