Description By collecting survey data from a representative national sample of 3,200 individuals in paid work in 2012, the project provides a key data resource for the study of the skills and employment experiences of workers in Britain. The Skills and Employment Survey 2012 (SES2012) is the sixth in a series of similar individual-level surveys carried out since 1986 and hence it builds on previous investments made by the ESRC and others.

• The findings provide new evidence on whether employers in Britain are making the best use of workers' skills and whether the jobs workers hold are being upskilled.

- The good news is that the qualification requirements of jobs have risen over the last quarter of a century. By 2012 jobs requiring degrees on entry reached an all time high, while jobs requiring no qualifications fell to historically low levels.
- Calls by policy-makers - such as the UKCES - for employers to make more effective use of qualifications appear to be being heeded. Despite rising for the two decades from 1986 to 2006, over-qualification fell for the first time between 2006 and 2012.
- Set against this, training and learning times have fallen and, while some of this decline might be explained as substitution by skill acquisition in education, generic skills growth has virtually come to a halt.

• One of the most striking findings is that workers are feeling more insecure than at any time in the past.

- Fear of job loss was higher in 2012 than at any other time, even though unemployment levels were not as high as they were in the mid-1980s.
- Over half felt their jobs might be downgraded in some way - that is double the proportion who thought they might lose their jobs. This suggests that those who survived the 2008-2009 recession by remaining in work were fearful that their jobs might nonetheless change for the worse.

• Relatedly, workers in 2012 were feeling more pressurised at work.

- They were working harder than survey respondents in the past, and were working quicker and under greater deadline pressures.
- They also felt less enthusiastic and contented with their jobs.
- In addition, they reported working under greater stress than survey respondents in 1992 ; that is, worrying about work, experiencing difficulty in unwinding and feeling worn out.

• The findings also identify where these experiences were most pronounced.

- While increasing feelings of insecurity and work pressure were widespread, they grew particularly sharply in the public sector, where they rose from a much lower base.
- Nevertheless, the worst effects of this climate of fear are lessened by way work is organised and, in particular, the level of say workers have in how work is carried out. The more employee involvement there is, the lower levels of fear.
-
Further research:

• 2-year follow-up of 1,000 respondents to SES2012 funded by ESRC as part of LLAKES.
• ESRC-UKCES Strategic Partnership funding for further analysis of the SES2012 data.
• Editing a 10-chapter book based on the dataset produced for this project - this will be published by Oxford University Press in 2015.
Exploitation Route Routes to Impact

• 6 short national reports and 2 short Welsh reports (and a full Welsh report) have been published and widely disseminated.
• 1 refereed journal article has been published, 4 have been accepted for publication and 1 is being refereed.
• 2 chapters have been accepted for publication (in addition to the edited book collection, see below) and 4 working papers have been produced - 2 by ESRC research centres, LLAKES and WISERD, and 2 by Skills Development Scotland.
• The research team have numerous conference papers and seminars presentations in order to highlight the scientific impact of the project and the availability of the data for secondary analysis.

Description The Skills and Employment Survey 2012 is the sixth in a series of representative sample surveys of workers in Britain. This round of data collection has allowed us to chart the changing pattern of job quality and skills over a quarter of a century, with some new survey questions specifically designed to reveal the impact of the recession on working life. The results have had, and continue to have, demonstrable economic and societal impacts. This is evidenced in six ways: 1. Engagement with policy-makers, civil servants and representative bodies with an interest in enhancing the quality of working life. During the course of the project, 4 launch events have been held across Britain - 2 in London, and 1 in Cardiff and 1 in Glasgow. Taken together, these events attracted an audience of 330. Delegates mainly consisted of policy-makers, political representatives, trade union officials, professional bodies, lobbying organisations, training providers and employers. 2. The project findings have attracted considerable media interest which have helped to generate public debate about how the quality of working life might be improved and the worst effects of austerity mitigated. Notably this included a front page article in the Financial Times, as well as articles in The Guardian and the Daily Mail, and commentary on Radio Four's Today programme and live interviews on Radio Five Live, LBC and Radio Cymru. 3. The project team wrote, designed and produced a series of 8 short reports with the intention of communicating bite-sized policy-relevant research messages to policy-makers. These have proved an effective device. A total of 4,600 hard copy reports have been distributed and all were made available for download from the project web site. This approach has been complimented by the publication of 3 articles in policy-making/practitioner facing outlets. 4. The results have informed policy-making as evidenced by project citations. For example, the UKCES recent review of the skills landscape makes frequent use of the SES results and associated data, the NHS Pay Review Body's pay recommendations for 2014 cite project results and the Welsh Government's policy on skills also refers to findings from the project. More recently, the survey findings have been used to frame public policy debates as the political parties launch their election manifestos for May 2015. Evidence has been used by the Smith Institute 'Making Work Better' Inquiry and the Skills Commission Inquiry into the Future of Work, whose deliberations are intended to influence the priorities of the next government. More recently, evidence taken from the survey appears has been used on several occasions - unfortunately, without attribution - in the Labour Party's manifesto for work (see Influence on Policy entry). 5. The lasting legacy of the project, however, is the data infrastructure which will permit further analyses to be carried out by academic or policy-based researchers on a variety of skills and job quality issues. It also maintains the tradition of carrying out such a survey every five years and therefore provides another data point against which future researchers will be able to make comparisons. To this end, four datasets have been lodged in the Data Archive and are available for analysts to download. The academic importance of the series as a crucial part of social science research infrastructure was recognised in 2014 when the Data Archive selected the series for inclusion in the 'curated collection'; that is, surveys which are regularly deposited by known researchers and frequently used by other social scientists. As of March 2015, a total of 507 researchers have downloaded the data from the series and used the material for research and teaching purposes. 6. The survey has also made a lasting impression on the collection of skills data internationally. The 'Job Requirements Approach', for example, has been built into the background questionnaire of the OECD's Programme for International Assessment of Adult Competences (PIAAC) - the adult equivalent of PISA - which was carried out in 24 countries in 2011/12. In addition, the 2012 SES questionnaire has been used with only modest change by the Institute of Adult Learning in Singapore.
