The CIPD Good Work Index is an annual benchmark of good work or job quality in the UK. Each year, we survey more than 5,000 workers across different sectors and occupations about key aspects of their work and employment and offer insights to drive improvement in working lives.
Our north of England summary report draws on our UK-wide CIPD Good Work Index research. Its purpose is to set out how people work in the north of England and what they think about it. We achieve this by capturing data on seven dimensions of work to define what good work looks like.
These seven dimensions are as follows:
- Pay and benefits
- Work-life balance
- Job design and the nature of work
- Relationships at work
- Employee voice
- Health and wellbeing
Our latest north of England report highlights headline findings from the CIPD Good Work Index 2023 survey report and contextualises them for a north of England audience. It includes practical recommendations for employers, people professionals and line managers.
Our north of England sample comprises 952 respondents of the total 5,139 employees across the UK.

CIPD view on good work
The CIPD believes that good work is fundamental to individual wellbeing, supports a strong, fair society, and creates motivated workers, productive organisations and a strong economy.
We define ‘good work’ as work that:
- is fairly rewarded
- gives people the means to securely make a living
- provides opportunities to develop skills and a career and gives a sense of fulfilment
- delivers a supportive environment with constructive relationships
- allows for work–life balance
- is physically and mentally healthy for people
- gives people the voice and choice they need to shape their working lives
- is accessible to all
- is affected by a range of factors, including HR practices, the quality of people management and by workers themselves.
