Beschreibung

We are living in the age of imagination and communication. This book, about the new ways time is experienced and organised in post-industrial workplaces, argues that the key feature of working time within knowledge, and other workplaces, is unpredictability, creating a culture that seeks to insert acceptance of unpredictability as a new 'standard'.

Working Time offers important theoretical and empirical insights into how employers and highly skilled 'knowledge' workers bargain over the management of time, both in and out of the office. The book will help readers better understand why technology is not delivering the promised goods in the workplace and why superior alternative arrangements are badly needed. (Matías D. Scaglione, Work, employment and society, Vol. 31 (6), 2018)
