The Value of Work project, which has been carried out with the support of the Goldschmeding Foundation since 2016, aims to provide new knowledge and more insight into the value(s) of work among the Dutch population.

An important part of this project is the Value of Work Monitor – a large-scale, national survey into the value(s) of work in the Netherlands.

On this website you can find the background and results of our studies.
