Institute for Work and Employment Research

Work, the workforce, and the economy are interdependent and rapidly changing. But the institutions and policies governing work still map to the industrial economy of the past. At the Institute for Work and Employment Research (IWER), faculty from MIT Sloan and other departments across the Institute are educating a new generation of researchers to reinvent the ways we work. The mission: address the needs and realities of 21st-century workers and the organizations that employ them.

IWER is a highly collaborative hub for the study of work and employment. The PhD program and weekly seminars attract researchers from around the world who want to learn about—and contribute to—the evolution of processes, policies, and procedures at the frontier of work.
