The Centre for Families, Work and Well-Being presents the first roundtable in a series aimed at sharing knowledge across departments and facilitating collaboration amongst faculty and graduate students.
The first round table will focus on the changing workplace and involve an interdisciplinary discussion with faculty and graduate students from across campus (Psychology, Sociology and Anthropology, Business, Economics and Management, Family Relations and Applied Nutrition).
During this session, we will explore current and future research areas of interest among participants related to the causes and consequences of the changing workplace in an interactive and exploratory manner. Participants will benefit by making new contacts/collaborations through stimulating discussion and exchange.
Over the last two decades, there have been major changes in the nature of employment relations and workplace practices. The scope of these changes is broad -- including both more precarious work arrangements and more flexible work options, as well as a more diverse workforce. Faculty from across campus are studying how these changes affect employers, employees and their families. This roundtable provides an opportunity to share knowledge and identify additional research questions.
