Globalisation, ICT and part-time work

trends in the OECD

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

TI1is article presents an examination of the trends associated with globalisation, information and communication technology (ICT) and part-time work arrangements in OECD countries. Examining these trends provides insight into the debate about convergent/divergent effects of globalisation and ICT have on work arrangements. Our review suggests that OECD countries are highly global economies that have taken a lead in the adoption of ICT's especially the Internet. There is however, considerable diversity in globalisation levels and ICT adoption within the CECD. Part-time work has tended to increase over the period 1990 to 1993 with ,, few exceptions. Against this backdrop a relationship between increasing Internet usage and part-time work is demonstrated. This has implications for convergence/divergence arguments.
