Abstract

Purpose – This paper examines the relationship between work, resilience and sustainable futures for
organisations and communities by considering the nature of work-related problems (WRPs) and the workbased
research designed to investigate them. The authors explore the axis of work environment > work-related
problem > resilience > sustainable futures as it might be impacted by work-based research.

Design/methodology/approach – The paper introduces two current real-world examples, one in Australia
and one in Asia, of work-based research projects associated with higher education aimed at promoting
resilience and sustainability, and discusses the research problems, questions, designs, methods, resilience
markers and sustainability markers used by these projects.

Findings – Work-based research, when conducted rigorously using mixed methods, may contribute to
increased resilience of organisations and communities and thereby seeks to promote more sustainable
organisational and social futures.

Practical implications – Work-based research conducted in higher education seeks to investigate,
address and solve WRP, even when such problems occur in unstable, changing, complex and messy
environments.

Social implications – Resilience and sustainable futures are ambiguous and disputed terms, but if workbased
research can be brought to bear on them, organisations and communities might better adapt and recover
from challenging situations, thus reducing their susceptibility to shock and adversity.

Originality/value – While resilience and sustainability are commonly referred to in the research literature,
their association to work, and specifically problems associated with work, have yet to be examined. This paper
goes some of the way to addressing this need.
