The annual CIPD Good Work Index gives valuable insight into job quality in the UK. Each year, we survey more than 5,000 workers across the UK on seven dimensions of job quality and produce a series of reports that take forward the findings of our CIPD Good Work Index surveys.
But who are the people behind the statistics and the headlines of the reports and what is the real experience of workers across the UK?
Good Work Stories, a series of case studies linked to the CIPD Good Work Index, bring to life our survey findings by sharing the views and experiences of people in different professions across the UK. Now in their second year, the stories help shine a light on what ‘good work’ looks like.
This year, we commissioned a total of 11 stories, all of which include ‘thinking points’ for people managers. These thinking points help people managers embed the learnings of the stories and give insight on how to improve job quality.
Our 11 case study subjects this year are:
• Audio Equipment Engineer
• Care Worker
• Contact Centre Advisor
• Funeral Operative
• Parish Clerk
• Police Officer
• Prison Treatment Manager
• Project Manager
• Warehouse Team Leader.
