Description

The effects of flexible labour on people, organisations and society can only be measured properly when a distinction is drawn between the many different forms of flexible labour. This was the key message in Professor Wendy Smits’s inaugural address at Maastricht University on 24 November 2017. Smits is a senior researcher at Statistics Netherlands (CBS) as well as an endowed professor in Labour Market Flexibility. There is a lot of public debate on flexible labour and its pros and cons, she explains. ‘We have conducted a lot of research on this subject during the first year of my professorship.’
