Ethics Alliance Event - The end of work? (Melbourne)

With up to five generations working together, each with different values and expectations about the role of work in their lives, navigating employment arrangements and conditions is becoming increasingly complex.

With ever-growing pressure under the guise of productivity, lean or agile working, people are becoming less connected, and more stressed out. Does a 40 hour work week now have a 60 hour digital footprint? Do flexible work hours lead to job insecurity? Is 9-5 worth protecting? How can we design teams and organisations better?

Drawing on employment law, the role of human resources and the unions, we’ll explore the ethical issues at play when determining who works, from where, and when.
