The globalisation glossary: a researcher's guide to understanding work organisation restructuring in a knowledge-based society
The WORKS project has been funded by the European Commission under its 6th Research Framework Programme with the ambitious aims of: improving our understanding of the major changes in work in the knowledge-based society, taking account both of global forces and of the regional diversity within Europe; investigating the evolving division of labour within and between companies and the related changes at the workplace; exploring the implications for the use of skills and knowledge, for flexibility and for the quality of working life; and examining the impact on occupational identities; time use and learning; as well as the impact on the social dialogue and the varieties of institutional shaping.
The glosssary can be consulted on the website of the WORKS project.
