Abstract

Submits that ‘dejobbing’ has occurred because of a variety of factors — which are listed out — but new technology is causing shifts in part‐time and temporary work and away from permanent employment. Believes technological advances have already affected business practices and that workers no longer have jobs but ‘do’ jobs and may have many employers in their working lifetime, rather than having a job for life as in the past. Concludes that companies will need to learn how to redeploy staff when they are superfluous to various areas.
