As part of its dissemination activities, the ESRC's Future of Work Programme has produced a series of seminars and publications on four issues at the centre of current public policy debate - Worklife Balance, Organisational Change and Performance, The Future of Employee Relations and Diversity in Britain's Labour Markets. At each seminar an invited audience of senior practitioners, academics and policy makers, were challenged to think about key policy issues arising from the research, and how these would influence their own organisations.

Seven reports by Robert Taylor, Media Fellow, ESRC, are now in the public domain. 'The Future of Employee Relations' and 'The Future of 'Work-Life Balance', 'Britain's World of Work - Myths and Realities', 'Diversity in Britain's Labour Market', 'Managing Workplace Change','Skills and Innovation in Modern Workplaces' and Partnerships at Work-The Way to Corporate Renewal?
