Research Initiatives

The Upjohn Institute has two multi-year research initiatives designed to focus attention on emerging issues of heightened economic and policy significance.

Investing in Community

The initiative Promise: Investing in Community focuses on how communities can create broadly shared prosperity by helping residents get and keep good jobs.

Gig Economy

The future of work will challenge many long-held assumptions about employment. The Alternative Work Arrangements and Gig Economy initiative explores these issues.
