Work and Productivity in Lancashire
Dr Adrian Wright, Director of the Institute for Research into Organisations, Work and Employment at University of Central Lancashire presents interim findings of the Work in Lancashire Survey which aims to understand more what makes work ‘good’ and productive in Lancashire.
The survey is focused around responding to two big questions which govern current thinking in the world of work. Firstly, how can we make work more productive? Secondly, how can we improve the quality of our working lives? While links between productivity and job quality often suggest pay and productivity are positively correlated, there is a growing need to look beyond pay to understand what makes work productive and examine facets of ‘good work’ such as job security, meaning, opportunity, training and progression, engagement, voice, health and wellbeing and the basic tenants of good people management.
The survey brings together academic, policy and organisational insights to help answer these questions and understand more about what it is like to work and manage in the region. Join Adrian and researchers from the University of Central Lancashire for an interactive presentation and hear the views of those that work in region.
