Contributors from public health, sociology, anthropology, nursing, management, economics, labor studies, and other fields look at four challenges to expanding needs-based justice for job related injury while preserving work-based prosperity. They are the dramatic rise in disability associated with the changing nature of work, methods of preventing injury and disability, the need for rehabilitation, and the difficulty of reconciling fairness for workers with economic sustainability in a competitive era. The focus is on empirical research and case studies in Canada, and several of the studies began as submissions to the British Colombia Royal Commission on Workers' Compensation in the spring of 1998.

Insights from organizations that are navigating the novel challenges of the digital workplace. How can technology and analytics help companies manage people? Why do teams working remotely still need leaders? When should organizations use digital assessment tools for gauging talent and potential? This book from MIT Sloan Management Review answers questions managers are only beginning to ask, presenting insights and stories from organizations navigating the novel challenges of the digital workplace. Experts from business and academia describe what's worked, what's failed, and what they've learned in the new world of work. They look at strategies that organizations use to help managers and employees adapt to the fast-changing digital environment, from the benefits of wool-gathering to the use of anonymous chats; examine digital tools for collaboration, including interactive spreadsheets and analytics that increase transparency; and discuss such “big-picture” trends as expanded notions of value and new frontiers in upskilling. A detailed case study, produced by MIT Sloan Management Review in collaboration with McKinsey & Company, explores how IBM reimagined talent and performance management with the goal of increasing employee engagement.

This paper explores aspects of inequality in Mesopotamia during the 4th millennium BC. This millennium was the era of early cities, which were accompanied by expanded hierarchies of power, new social identities, and innovative modes of working and labour management. Selected types of material culture–statues, amulets, eye idols, clay cone mosaics and bevelled-rim bowls– are explored. Their frequency, quality, raw materials, production and use contexts have a range of implications with regard to the status of their producers and their accessibility to users. Their varied accessibility in particular is illustrative of inequalities and inequities in Late Uruk/Late Chalcolithic Period Mesopotamia. In identifying past inequities in particular, it may be useful to think of ‘attached objects’ rather than ‘attached specialists’. | Il presente articolo intende esplorare alcuni aspetti dell’ineguaglianza in Mesopotamia nel corso del IV millennio a.C. Questo millennio vide l’origine delle più antiche città, accompagnate da gerarchie di potere espanse, nuove identità sociali e modi innovativi di organizzazione del lavoro. Classi selezionate di materiali quali statue, amuleti, idoli degli occhi, mosaici a coni d’argilla e beveled-rim bowls verrano prese in esame. Fattori quali la loro frequenza, qualità, materia prima, produzione e contesti di utilizzo hanno una serie di implicazioni riguardo allo status dei loro produttori e la loro accessibilità nei confronti dei fruitori. In particolare, la loro differente accessibilità testimonia ineguaglianze e iniquità nei periodi Tardo Uruk/Tardo Calcolitico in Mesopotamia. Nel tentativo di identificare ineguaglianze nel passato, in particolare, può essere utile considerare il concetto di attached objects piuttosto che di attached specialists.

Over the last decades, the world of work has undergone considerable changes. Although such changes are not new to the labor market, the economy has increasingly become a more complex and dynamic environment. Several drivers, such as demographic change, technological change, and globalization, lead to a changing world of work that results in various groups of employees with individual needs and aspirations. Consequently, organizations face the challenge of retaining these individuals, to ensure a qualified workforce and to gain competitive advantage. The aim of Laura Schärrer’s dissertation was to examine the retention of three groups of employees that have increasingly emerged through changes in the context of work. Specifically, the three empirical studies shed light on the question of whether and how the psychological contract can enhance the retention of young, gig, and migrant workers.
