Employment: A Key Idea for Business and Society introduces a topic that many of us take for granted yet is central to how we understand business and management.

Most people work for the majority of their lives and, in recent years, employment has become a topic of popular debate, particularly asking what the future of work could be.

Much of this has focused on the role of technology and automation, as well as the growth of the gig economy and new forms of work. This book provides new ways to think about our own experiences of work and debates on employment.

The book covers the history of employment, key changes to work, and a global perspective.

The major debates in employment are introduced, providing theories for readers to develop their own perspectives.

In particular, the book reappraises management theory, the role of workers’ agency in changing work, surveys the state of current research and methods, and sketches out the key changes on the horizon for employment.

This book will provide students with a critical introduction to employment, equipping them with the resources to research, understand, and rethink the topic.
