Employment and Economic Participation

Economic participation refers to how an individual’s engagement in work influences their access to economic resources and opportunities. Prior research has shown that employment and economic participation are critical to the prosperity and wellbeing of a population. In line with the BEST Centre’s vision to use evidence-based behavioural research to transform society and the economy, our researchers collaborate with a range of public and private sector institutions to improve the diversity and inclusiveness of workplaces for the benefit of all Australians. To maximise the impact of this research, we developed the following logic model to guide the translation of the outputs from our funded research activities into outcomes.

To illustrate our pathways to impact, please see links below to some of our recent projects. For more information on the BEST Centre’s Employment and Economic Participation research, please email: byron.keating@qut.edu.au.
