Abstract

Few activities are as fundamental to society and to the individual as work. A pervasive activity, our work produces value for ourselves and for others. Work is one of the main bases underpinning a great many economic and social institutions; it is a force behind industrial development, a source of social cohesion, the main activity linking people to the broader social world, and the major way by which individuals are positioned in society.
