Work 2000 addresses the much-debated topic of the future of work. Interviews with 26 uniquely-placed individuals resulted in a broad-based view of the links between Britain's past, present and future working practices. The authors draw this material together and develop it alongside a more conceptual consideration of current work-based issues such as corporate culture, enterprise and entrepreneurship, changing patterns of work and management styles in the run-up to the year 2000.
