Findlay, P., Lindsay, C., McQuarrie, J., Pascoe-Deslauriers, R., with Findlay, J., Smart, A. and Chalmers, D. (2016) " Harnessing knowledge, research and networks to drive fair, innovative and transformative work in Scotland - Fair, Innovative and Transformative Work (FITwork) Project Year 1 Report: Parts 1 and 2", University of Strathclyde, Glasgow.  






This document reports on Years 1 of the FITwork project. Part 1 reviews the policy and economic context and evidence base for our work, describes how we have operationalised FITwork through a conceptual framework and diagnostic tool, and highlights potential benefits for employees, employers and the broader policy agenda around inclusive growth. In Part 2, we examine how issues related to fair work, workplace innovation and innovation policy have been presented and debated by policymakers and stakeholder organisations, including employer representative organisations, civil society organisations and trade unions, over the last decade. Our main focus is on current stakeholder views on the broader FITwork terrain, and to the challenges facing stakeholders, particularly in relation to the challenges of building collaborative activity that might support and deepen FITwork. Read the full report here…
