Mapping the Quality of Working Life in Britain: Exploring an Occupational Approach

This ESRC SDAI project (till autumn 2020) is designed to explore an occupational approach to mapping, understanding, and improving the quality of working life drawing upon sociological theories of stratification.

The project has four objectives:

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

• Map how job well-being 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 well-being across occupational quality categories.
