Good job?

This event, hosted by UK think tank the Resolution Foundation will discuss how our experience of work has changed over the past 30 years.

In-person event and live interactive webinar. This event will be streamed online with a limited in-person audience.

The world of work has changed substantially over the past 30 years – from what job we do, to how we do it and what we get paid. These things matter for our job satisfaction – indeed our life satisfaction, via the esteem we get from work, to the stress or success it can bring. For many people, jobs are such a large part of our lives that changes to them can shape our well-being – for good, and for bad.

What have been the big picture shifts in our experience of work over recent decades, and how does this differ by pay, occupation and gender? Is the commonly-held view that the quality of work has deteriorated wide of the mark? How do we feel about economic change when it affects the job we do? And what can policy makers do to improve our experience of work in the future?

The Resolution Foundation is hosting an in-person and interactive webinar – as part of The Economy 2030 Inquiry – to debate and answer these questions. Following a presentation of the key highlights from new research on people’s experience of work, we will hear from two leading experts on what they think has driven these past shifts, and where we could be heading in the future.

The event will be open for a limited number of people to physically attend, and also broadcast via YouTube and the Resolution Foundation website. Viewers will be able to submit questions to the panel before and during the event.


Matthew Taylor: Chief Executive of the NHS Confederation and former head of the RSA 

Kelly Beaver: Managing Director at Ipsos MORI public affairs

Dan Tomlinson: Senior Economist at the Resolution Foundation

Torsten Bell: Chief Executive of the Resolution Foundation (Chair)
