Work intensification, fear at work and job-related well-being in Britain

Starts: 20 May 2013

Monday 20th May 2013, 12:30pm - 3:30pm, Nunn Hall, Institute of Education, 20 Bedford Way, London, WC1H 0AL (Map)

Professor Alan Felstead from the Cardiff School of Social Sciences is leading a team of researchers who are investigating the impact of the recession on working lives. The research is based on a survey of workers carried out across Britain in 2012.  At the launch, the authors – Alan Felstead, Duncan Gallie, Francis Green and Hande Inanc – will present headline findings of the survey and invite the audience to discuss them. Three themes will provide the focus for the event:

  1. Work intensification
  2. Fear at work
  3. Job related well-being

Each theme will be covered in three short reports which will be available at the event and on the project web site. The launch event will be preceded by a buffet lunch served from 1pm. Presentations will begin at 1:30pm with an introduction from the sponsors (the Economic and Social Research Council and the UK Commission for Employment and Skills) followed by 20 minute theme-focussed presentations by members of the research team. To end the event, Brendan Barber, former General Secretary of the TUC, will act as the discussant.

The event is free to attend but places are limited and attendance will be by prior registration only.
