This inquiry explored the impacts of new and changing technology on the quantity and nature of work. It built on research and modelling carried out by governments, academics and other organisations in New Zealand and throughout the world. Two broad questions guided our assessment:
- What are the current and likely future impacts of technological change and disruption on the future of work, the workforce, labour markets, productivity and wellbeing?
- How can the Government better position New Zealand and New Zealanders to take advantage of innovation and technological change in terms of productivity, labour-market participation and the nature of work?
