Professor Thomas Lange joins Global Labor Organisation as a fellow
Published: Monday 7th August 2017
We are delighted to announce that Professor Thomas Lange, founding member of ACU’s Centre for Sustainable HRM and Wellbeing, has been formally invited to serve as GLO Fellow.
Setting the Scene
Earlier this year, a group of world leading social scientists created and launched the Global Labor Organization (GLO) -- a global, independent, non-partisan and non-governmental organisation that has no institutional position. GLO functions as an international network interested in scientific research and its policy and societal implications on global labour markets, demographic challenges and human resources.
Important policy reforms are called for to tackle unemployment, inequality and poverty as well as to promote the creation of good and well paid jobs, and achieving balanced employment across gender, ages, skills, ethnicities and nationalities. Ultimately, this will promote sustainable and inclusive growth and a more cohesive and safer world.
Observing ethical rules on research integrity, the Global Labor Organization (GLO) aims to fill a significant gap in the global community between scientific research and evidence-based policy making.
Professor Lange joins an esteemed assembly of world-leading scientists, including Nobel Laureate Jim Heckman and Nobel nominee Jagdish Bhagwati, as well as other globally prominent social scientists and policy makers.
Professor Lange commented: ”I am very humbled to receive this invitation. The Global Labor Organization has quickly become one of the world’s leading research and policy networks on labour, demographics and human resources. Its current membership covers 90 countries. As a GLO Fellow, I will proudly represent ACU and the Centre for Sustainable HRM and Wellbeing, on a global stage.”
