Centre for Work + Life

The Centre for Work + Life is a hub for innovative thinking about work, life, and improving the wellbeing of Australians. We focus on generating long-term change, tackling the big questions around how work in Australia intersects with households, community and social life.

We take an international approach to research, and regularly invite imaginative researchers and thinkers from Australia and around the world to participate in activities.

Consultancy research is undertaken where it extends our capacity to understand the relationship between work and a healthy Australian society.

The national Australian Work and Life Index, based on a regular national survey of Australian workers, was established by the Centre and remains a proud achievement.
