Abstract:

This is a ESRC SDAI project designed to explore an occupational approach to mapping, understanding, and improving the quality of working life drawing upon sociological theories of stratification. It has four objectives:

• Map how the key dimensions of job quality are clustered across the occupational structure.

• Map how job wellbeing evolves over the working life based on occupational quality.

• Map how occupational mobility might improve the quality of working life.

• Map how the workplace might moderate job quality and job-related wellbeing across occupational quality categories.

Our findings will help understand and develop pathways to improving the quality of working life, having implications for the appropriate statistical tools needed to map it, for job growth and mobility policies, for practitioners whose job it is to manage workplace wellbeing and for working individuals themselves.
