A recent study by a ReWAGE sub-group revealed that it is feasible to use proxy measures available from large-scale data sources to develop broad indicators of job quality. This could help the UK government measure job quality consistently across roles, sectors and geographical areas. *|IFNOT:ARCHIVE_PAGE|* Read MoreLink opens in a new window *|END:IF|**|IF:ARCHIVE_PAGE|*
This will enable it to demonstrate the impact of its Good Work Plan (2018), in which it committed to a wide range of policy and legislative changes for the benefit of workers and employers. The sub-group, led by Professor Peter EliasLink opens in a new window of the IER, has made some recommendations for next steps, and you can find their evidence paperLink opens in a new window and a short summaryLink opens in a new window of the feasibility study on the ReWAGE website.
ReWAGE also responded to the government’s recent call for evidence on its Mental Health and Wellbeing Plan. Our input mainly focused on providing support for the mental health and wellbeing of working age adults, with a recommendation for greater transparency about the prevalence of the work conditions that have been shown to accentuate mental ill-health.
Congratulations to all IER students who have graduated!

Job quality matters and has long and continually done so, even if the terminology used to describe it has varied, and continues, to vary. As new technologies and the lasting effects of a pandemic influence debates about the future of work and job quality in the twenty-first century, The Oxford Handbook of Job Quality provides an interdisciplinary and international perspective on the subject and presents original research. Chapters explore both established approaches and new perspectives on job quality, as well as focusing specifically on key issues, regional and sectoral developments, and ways to improve job quality.
