The Resolution Foundation is an independent think-tank focused on improving living standards for those on low to middle incomes. The Foundation’s established work programme focuses on incomes, inequality and poverty; jobs, skills and pay; housing; wealth and assets; tax and welfare; public spending and the shape of the state, and economic growth.
Our Strategic Partnership with the Resolution Foundation will drive forward the development of technology which can play a crucial role in giving people better information about the jobs they take on, or to help them connect, organise and share information with each other.
The world of work is changing, with rising automation and increasing levels of job insecurity. We have seen how exposed many people are to changes in hours, lack of health and safety protections, and how few opportunities there are for flexible employment that works for families.
These challenges need to be tackled in new ways, to help people transition into different sectors, add to their skills, and improve the conditions at work. This is especially important for those on low-pay or with insecure contracts.
