The platform economy and quality of work

A knowledge synthesis

The labour market is changing. Trends such as the growing use of technology, the increase in flexible employment and population ageing not only affect the availability of paid work, but also its quality. In ‘The changing world of work’ (De veranderende wereld van werk) series the Netherlands Institute for Social Research (scp) looks at the future of work and studies and at the potential consequences of labour market  changes for the quality of work. The first report focuses on the quality of work in the ‘platform economy’.
