Technology and low pay

How Workertech can help build a better post-Covid future for workers

Discussions of the Future of Work frequently tend to focus on the role of technology in facilitating remote working for knowledge workers, the rise of the robots and the implications of AI. They seldom discuss how technology could be deployed to improve the prospects of low paid and insecure workers.

The Resolution Foundation, in partnership with a group of leading impact organisations, has created a £1.3million fund to back start-ups with the mission of improving the prospects of workers at the sharp end of the labour market. But what is the potential of technology to increase the pay, progression and power of workers in the post-Covid jobs market? What role is there for social investment? And what challenges need to be overcome?

In this webinar we will be joined by four experts who will share insights into funding, designing and deploying technology to improve work. Viewers will be able to submit questions to the panel before and during the event.
