58th Annual Conference of the Canadian Industrial Relations Association (CIRA)

Better Work I & II: Understanding What Makes Work Better or Worse. CRIMT and its partnership project on institutional experimentation for better work CIRA workshops

CRIMT, in collaboration with the Canadian Industrial Relations Association (CIRA), held two roundtables entitled Work: For Better or for Worse at the Association’s 2021 Conference.

Bringing together ten members of the CRIMT Partnership Project, these roundtables provided an opportunity to discuss how to think about better and worse work. Each panel featured the ideas of four researchers who drew on their research findings to address the issue.

The panelists answered a series of questions from a common grid covering three constituent dimensions of work: risk, whether economic, health or social; control or autonomy, i.e. the ability to exercise control over one’s work and its limits in relation to other aspects of one’s life outside of work; and expressiveness, i.e. the dimensions that relate to voice, as well as to the possibility of achieving one’s potential at work.

What Kind of Work for the Future? Perturbations, expérimentations et re-régulation
