[UK] TRENDS IN SKILLS REQUIREMENTS AND WORK-RELATED ISSUES [27 January 2014]
[full-text, 15 pages]
The first findings of the 2012 Skills and Employment Survey, published in early 2013, present an up-to-date, authoritative picture of British employees’ experiences and views regarding their current work situation. The survey focuses on skill requirements, training, task discretion and job control, job-related well-being, fears over job loss and unfair treatment at work, and work intensification. In comparing the findings with those of the 2006 survey, the survey also shows the impact of the recession in both private and public sectors.
