Summary 'Better work: society's new mission'

This publication is a translation of the Dutch summary of WRR report 102 Het betere werk. De nieuwe maatschappelijke opdracht (Better work: society's new mission). The conclusions and recommendations presented here are based on in-depth analyses of the policy and academic literature that can be found in the full report.

New technology, flexibilization and the intensification of work could have significant consequences for those who still have work in the future. For this reason the Netherlands Scientific Council for Government Policy is arguing that good work for everyone should now be seen as an important aspiration for companies, institutions, social partnesrs and the governement. Good work is essential for general well-being: for the economy and for society as a whole.
