How does work affect our quality of life?

 

In Work and Wellbeing: Exploring Data in Inequalities, we analyse how changing workplace trends are impacting on the quality of life for employees across the UK. We also ask how different aspects of work may fit together to make for ‘fulfilling work.’ Tackling core issues like sufficient pay and hours to cover the cost of living is essential. But the impact of financial security, opportunities for training and progression and a social, flexible workplace, also needs to be better understood if work is to improve, rather than damage, wellbeing.

Read the report and our discussion paper.
