Creating opportunities for people to have effective voice at work is a fundamental aspect of ensuring job quality. Major changes in the modern work environment including new types of employment relationship and digitalisation are challenging individuals’ ability to have influence over their working conditions.
The aim of this first phase of the research is to highlight the key insights that people professionals should consider to drive better people management practice. It also contributes to the growing agenda around creating ‘good work’ led by the UK Government, by providing evidence of the factors affecting individuals’ ability to shape their working conditions.
While these findings are based on UK data, the broader trends and implications should be of interest wherever you are based. The research is accompanied by an executive summary, including recommendations.
