The Lens on trust, trade unions and tech

What does it mean to have a good job?

Oli Barrett MBE talks to Frances O’Grady, General Secretary at The Trades Union Congress (TUC), and Sasha Howard a Product Manager at Freeformers, a start-up on a mission to change the digital economy.

Oli and guests discuss: good work, what it is and what it means; how technology can change how businesses operate in the future; the right kind of support at work; surveillance and the darker side of companies using employee data; zero-hours contracts; and how we can enjoy our jobs. Of course, Oli asks Sasha and Frances who most wish to meet for a coffee and for their recommendations on books to read and resources to dive into.
