Good Work For All: Action Plan

This action plan will help your business take practical steps to improve work for your lowest-paid employees.
There are more people in work in the UK than ever before, but falling wages and rising job insecurity has led to a sharp decline in the quality of work. More than 1 in 5 workers now face precarious employment conditions that mean they could lose their work suddenly (Joseph Rowntree, 2018). Even with a job, 1 in 8 UK workers are living in poverty (Joseph Rowntree, 2018) so it is highly likely this applies to some of your employees. Research shows that job quality, employee health and wellbeing, engagement and productivity are closely linked. It’s in every business’ interest to offer good work.
This action plan breaks down activity into three key areas, highlighting practical changes against each section. We have also highlighted three key enablers to ensure change is effective across your business.
