The Association of Professional Staffing Companies APSCo has welcomed Friday’s publication of the ‘Measuring Good Work’ report compiled by the RSA and Carnegie Trust, which focuses on the recommendation in the Taylor Review that ‘the Government must place equal importance on the quality of work as it does on the quantity’.
The recommendations in the report detail the findings of the Measuring Job Quality Working Group co-chaired by Matthew Taylor and Martyn Evans of the Carnegie Trust. Set up in 2017, the Group put forward job quality measures - relating to the terms of employment, pay & benefits, health, safety & wellbeing, job design & nature of work, social support & cohesion, and work life balance. The Group concluded, however, that due to difficulties in collating data in these areas, a cross-UK survey was the only viable way to generate this information and instead suggested job quality metrics should be added to the Labour Force Survey (LFS).
Samantha Hurley, Operations Director at APSCo commented:
“We welcome the ‘Measuring Good Work’ report’s recommendations which encourage action to better understand the make-up of the UK jobs market in terms of quality of work, not just quantity. We will continue to work closely with the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) - as we have done for many years on issues impacting the professional jobs market , and we would be happy to urge our members to complete such a survey.”
