This research project, to map the contours of organisational fairness, is a collaboration between the CIPD, the Centre for Performance-led HR and The Work Foundation. It was conceived in the wake of a financial crisis in many Western economies which is reshaping the relationship between market, state, organisations and individuals.

The report, The changing contours of fairness: Can we match individual and organisational perspectives? outlines six broad families of fairness lenses which are applied to a range of issues faced by organisations – women on boards; pensions; executive pay; equality vs equity vs diversity; corporate social responsibility; inter-generational rewards – alternative notions of what’s fair emerge.
