Work can have a profound effect on individuals and society; a good quality job can not only increase income and living standards, but also improve mental and physical health. A healthy workforce can produce more and contribute to economic growth. However, the world of work is changing due to so-called megatrends such as automation and technology: this will have implications for policymakers.

Centre for the Analysis of Social Policy (CASP) researchers analyse and evaluate various types of work and wage policies, both contemporary and historic, with the aim of improving decision making in an area which is at the forefront of the policy agenda.
