Tony Dobbins, professor of work and employment relations at Birmingham University Business School explores with Michael Millward a Bertrand Russell quotation about how work as a concept was unfit for purpose in 1933.

They agree that Russell was 90 years ahead of his time, and that 19th Century attitudes to work are still prevalent which essentially means that the challenges for both employers and employees also remain essentially unchanged.

Their discussion centres on what employers and employees need to do to ensure in the 21st Century that the process of work delivers value for both.
