The CIPD’s Very Own Good Work Index is Finding that Poor Jobs can be Improved

The CIPD are now calling on professionals to see if it is possible to shake up the way that people work, and this could work wonders for the working environment and for employees too. The CIPD have launched a benchmark to show working life in the UK. They are calling on the people profession to try and make sure that job quality does not take a backseat in the overall quest to try and protect jobs.

The CIPD Good Work Index

The CIPD Good Work Index have revealed a very worrying decline in the overall wellbeing over the last year or two. They have also highlighted that some jobs are really undeniably better than others. This is worrying to say the least. This is not just in terms of pay or even contracts either because it is also in terms of the day to day experience.

Some differences in job quality really are inherent to the overall nature of work and even the structure of the labour market. This is going to have a huge impact on labour recruitment and even labour jobs too. Reports have found that changes in people management, or even in employment practices could easily improve job quality in a lot of cases. They have also found that two parts of the job quality, which include job design and even relationships have a huge role to play. This could make a huge difference for working lives and job performance overall.

Of course, only time will tell what the future holds but right now it looks like more needs to be done to try and make sure that everyone is given the support they need at work and that they are also able to feel confident in their abilities.
