Key benefits: Understand the real issues that affect modern worklife within global capitalism from a range of perspectives; Evaluate key debates about work quality through a flexible, critical mindset and a social perspective; Build a strong social understanding of work place issues through a diverse and international set of field accounts, from the UK, Europe, the US, Australia and New Zealand.
