Ireland today is emerging from the long shadow of the recession to enjoy a stronger labour market. For citizens to reap the benefits of the economic recovery to enjoy a better quality of life, we need to focus not only on the numbers in employment but also on quality of work.

Drawing on national and European statistics, Fulfilling Work in Ireland discusses how the changing labour market and economy are impacting on quality of work and wellbeing for workers across Ireland. Against a backdrop of flat lining real wages and growing insecurity for many, the report argues that a renewed focus on job quality will be key to ensuring the economic recovery delivers for people in Ireland.
