"The Role of Work in Developing Human Capability" by Jane Bryson Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand and SKOPE (Centre on skills, knowledge & organisational performance), University of Oxford, UK. Abstract: This presentation explores how work acts as both driver of, contributor to, and barrier to, developing human capability. The optimal conditions for developing human capability in New Zealand organisations are the focus of a large research programme the “Developing Human Capability: employment institutions, organisations and individuals” project. This paper reports recent findings of case study research for this project which explores institutional, organisational and individual influences on the development of human capability in New Zealand workplaces. The paper outlines: key themes from various bodies of literature addressing capability (including Sen 1999); the approach taken to the case studies; recent findings and their implications for our understanding of the role of work in developing human capability.
