2017 United Nations International Labour Organisation (ILO). Dr Moore was invited as an expert advisor for the UNI Global Union Professionals and Managers section at the ILO meetings on Violence against Women and Men in the World of Work in October 2016.

Dr Moore is an official contributor with case studies and references to her work (p. 109) for the ILO ACTRAV Report resulting from this high level meeting which feeds into discussions for a new labour standard or convention, entitled ‘Violence and Harrassment Against Women and Men in the World of Work: Trade Union Perspectives and Action’ Online:

Dr Moore’s article, ‘The psycho-social impacts of technological change in contemporary workplaces and trade union responses’, co-authored with Pav Akhtar, has been published in the ILO ACTRAV’s International Journal of Labour Research (IJLR) for a special issue edited by ILO colleagues on this topic

Dr Moore’s research is also referenced in the Labour Research Department’s booklet Protecting Workers from Violence and Abuse published February 2017.

Recent media appearances

2017 Financial Times. Interview featured in FT article ‘Wearables in the Workplace and the Dangers of Employee Surveillance’ in the report on Employment: Best Practice Online:

Transparency is crucial in forming [a wearables in workplace] strategy’, says Phoebe Moore, an academic who works with multinational companies and unions to devise codes of conduct about their data gathering practices. She adds that often workers do not realise the extent to which they are being observed, from their emails being read to voice and motion technology being used to analyse how great a contribution they make in meetings. Ms Moore recommends that employees are involved in the process of formulating a data policy and that the guidelines are very clear in stating why data are captured and what they are used for. “Communication [with staff] is very important,” she says. “Who owns the data? Who stores it? Can it be sold?”

2017 BizTech. Interview featured in article ‘Want to Improve Employee Productivity? Wearables Could be the Answer’, Online:

Businesses are looking to technology to measure workers’ activities, creating a more productive and efficient workforce, says Dr. Phoebe Moore, a senior lecturer at Middlesex University in London who has done extensive research on the subject.

The growing initiative, called the “quantified self at work” or the “quantified workplace,” comes in many forms, Moore says. In some cases, businesses equip employees with wearable sensors that track their movements and speech patterns. Through data analysis, employers then look for trends and make adjustments aimed at boosting performance — perhaps, by redesigning office spaces to encourage communication and collaboration.

In other instances, companies use gamified, goal-setting apps, which provide a central dashboard for managers and employees to track and discuss their progress.

According to Moore, one popular way for businesses to implement the quantified workplace is through corporate wellness programs that outfit workers with fitness trackers, measuring the distance they walk each day.

…balance is just what companies should strive for when pursuing the quantified workplace, Moore says: “The ideal scenario is one that benefits both the workers and the people who run the company.

2016 BBC Radio 4. Interview featured in the radio programme ‘Work‘ as part of the series FutureProofing, based on contribution to the Implant Party at FutureFest London Online:

2016 The Atlantic. ‘How Fitness Trackers Make Leisure More Like Work’ Dr Moore’s academic work is referenced by Frank Pasquale Online:
