Work, Learning and Wellbeing

Lead Research Organisation: University of East Anglia
Department Name: Norwich Business School

Abstract

Is it possible to change working practices so that workers are happier, more productive and absent less often? How can growing numbers of older workers best adapt to working later in life and find new jobs in changing labour markets? What lifelong learning opportunities do adults require in order to thrive in globalised and technologically advanced economy? What are the societal costs of ignoring worker wellbeing? This research is concerned with addressing questions such as these and identifying practical interventions, tools and processes that can protect and enhance the wellbeing of workers, adult learners and those seeking work. Wellbeing comprises many components. In relation to work- and adult learning, wellbeing is formed from multiple factors including: the experience of positive emotions in work and in learning and infrequent experience of negative emotions; job satisfaction; work-life balance; work and learning performance; skills development. Understanding such a diverse concept requires expertise from a range of research areas, including economics, education, law, public health, employment relations and psychology. This project will build upon the wealth of existing research and data to identify what can be done to protect and enhance the wellbeing of workers, adult learners and those seeking work.

In the first phase of the research, we will identify nine priority areas for action. To help us identify and refine priorities, we will engage with different user groups through public consultations. We will then address two main issues. 1. We will examine 'what works' for protecting or enhancing aspects of wellbeing. In each priority area, we will begin by identifying, systematically reviewing and evaluating the best possible research in order to identify factors that can protect or improve wellbeing. 2. Then we will examine 'what works for whom and in which circumstances'. We will do this by analysing the best existing data - for example the most comprehensive nationally and inter-nationally representative surveys. We will take the results from our reviews of existing research and examine if some factors promote wellbeing more for some groups (eg. younger workers, workers in service jobs) than for others. We will examine trade-offs and spillovers between different components of wellbeing within or between different groups. For example, do people take on new work that is difficult and stressful in the short-term so that they may acquire skills and have a more interesting job in the longer term? Do organisations that promote work-life balance also promote intergenerational benefits through the educational attainments of workers' children, as workers spend more time helping their children learn through culturally or physically rich activities? By examining what works for whom and in which circumstances, trade-offs and spillovers, we will produce a rigorous assessments of the costs and benefits of specific interventions for a range of groups.

The team will be mindful of two major principles. First, 'what works' needs to be actionable by workers, adult learners, those seeking work and those close to them (eg. line managers, educators, careers advisors, job centre staff) - so the research will focus on what can be done 'on the ground'. Second, because wellbeing is comprised of many things, we will seek interventions that offer improvements across a broad range of the elements of wellbeing and a broad range of people. By doing so the results which speak more effectively to policy actors who have to account for the inter-dependencies of specific interventions in the context of heterogeneous users.

Throughout the research, the team will engage with the public through extensive use of social and traditional media, public lectures, workshops and talks. This engagement will inform the guidance we offer so that it is heedful of the complexities, obstacles and trade-offs that stakeholders encounter when initiating action.

Planned Impact

We have a highly interactive and user-led approach to our work (as detailed in the case for support and pathways to impact). Our focus primarily is on user-benefit and user-uptake of knowledge. Nevertheless, the knowledge we produced will be a synthesis of theoretically and methodologically rigorous and systematic interrogation of the best possible research and existing data.

Beneficiaries fall into four major groups:

1) End users such as workers, adult learners, those about to enter the workforce such as students and job seekers.

2) Those that are close to end users, including GPs, trade union representatives, line managers, educators, job centre staff, careers and vocational advisors. For the end users and those close to them, benefits will come from improved understanding of wellbeing and its importance in 'living a good, productive and intellectually rich life'; how to make local adjustments in work and learning environments to protect and promote wellbeing; and, through tools and calculators to aid decision making, how different courses of action (eg. job choice) may affect different aspects of wellbeing.

3) Intermediate users, such as Local Enterprise Partnership board members, employer groups (Chamber of Commerce, Small Business Associations), further education college principals and other adult learning providers, County/City councils, public service commissioners, senior managers in private, public and voluntary organisations. For intermediate users, benefits will come through improved understanding of: wellbeing and interventions to improve wellbeing; wellbeing's contribution to organisational performance and social equality; trade-offs between performance and wellbeing; and tools and calculators for evaluating the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of wellbeing interventions.

4) High-level users, such as policy makers (politicians), implementers (civil servants, charities), influencers (professional and trades institutions and bodies such as the Institute of Directors) in the UK and elsewhere (eg. European Trade Union Confederation, EU Occupational Safety and Health Agency), and other What Works Centres (especially National Institute of Clinical Excellence {NICE}, Educational Endowment Foundation and What Works Centre for Local Economic Growth). The benefits for high-level users are similar to those for intermediate users. Improvements in understanding will be more sophisticated than other user groups, and will encompass an understanding of the evidence-base, the limitations of the evidence-base, and gaps in the evidence. There will be enhanced understanding of interventions to improve wellbeing that can be enacted, supported or encouraged through policy and how 'wellbeing' policy may contribute to, for example, national, regional and sectoral economic performance, tax revenues, and health service spend. High level users will be able to contact the team to solicit answers to specific policy questions, with answers provided through rapid evidence reviews, systematic reviews, meta-analyses and secondary analysis as appropriate.

We will stress to all beneficiaries that interventions to improve wellbeing must be based on the best available evidence for cause and effect (which will necessarily involve developing and disseminating a simple and intuitive explanation and demonstrator for beneficiaries 1 and 2), that sometimes there may be trade-offs to be made between different aspects of wellbeing, that contextual factors need to be considered when choosing and implementing interventions, and users need to consider potential knock-on effects of unintended reductions in wellbeing outside of interventions' targets.

We have requested a total of £44,990 for our impact activities. These include: 6 conferences in cities across the UK; 3 conferences in Norwich; 90 public lectures across the UK; meetings with senior civil servants; a web-portal; briefing reports, three high quality summary reports.

Description Key findings to date are:

In relation to enhancing wellbeing through improving the quality of jobs:
i) Training to improve job quality might improve well-being and may, in some cases, also improve performance
ii) Training coupled with direct improvements with job quality might improve well-being, and may, in some cases, also improve performance
iii) System wide approaches, that simultaneously enhance job quality and a range of other management practices and that are focused on worker welfare, appear to improve well-being and performance.
iv) The features of high quality work tend to coalesce in distinct clusters of high quality jobs (e.g. characterised by autonomy, skill use, job security, training and development) associated with better wellbeing and attitudes towards work. The South of England appears to have a higher proportion of high quality jobs compared to the rest of Great Britain.
v) To make successful changes in job design, it is important that: managers engage with workers to understand their concerns; managers are committed to improving wellbeing and job quality; workers are engaged and involved in any changes; and changes to improve wellbeing are integrated with other business systems
vi) Actions to improve social functioning in workplaces through shared activities may improve well-being and a range of performance-relevant outcomes. Such actions require some input external to the workgroups concerned, favourable worker attitudes prior to the intervention and several different components. Strong workplace social identities may also provide resilience in adverse economic circumstances.


In relation to work based learning:
i) Training and development programmes that increase the individual's personal skills to cope with stress are effective in also delivering enhanced wellbeing to the learner; this positive effect happens irrespective of whether the training uses cognitive techniques or relaxation techniques or a combination.
ii) Training and development that enhances the individual's professional capability (i.e. mastery of job specific skill) may also have positive benefits for the wellbeing of the learner.
iii) The increase in job satisfaction caused by job-related training is comparable to the increase gained from a 1% increase in hourly wages.
iv) Leadership training which improves leadership skills can also improve the wellbeing of the leader and those they manage; group based learning which is more interactive is more likely to be effective.
v) Training and development that uses on line learning methods is less effective than more extensive forms of learning in producing positive wellbeing outcomes for the learner or the organisation.
v) It remains unclear how training and development that takes place within the context of wider organisational change programs impacts on the wellbeing of learners or other organisational members.

In relation to transitions in and out of employment:
i) Unemployment is damaging to people's wellbeing regardless of their age, gender, level of education, ethnicity or part of the country in which they live. The longer the unemployment spell, the worse the effect.
ii) Men tend to suffer worse wellbeing as a result of unemployment, but this relationship is nuanced. Women with egalitarian attitudes suffer worse wellbeing as a result of unemployment.
iii) People do not adapt to unemployment (their wellbeing is permanently reduced)
iv) Transitions in or out of worklessness for one member of a household can also have spillover effects on the wellbeing of others - usually the spouse - in the household.
v) Re-employment leads to higher wellbeing


In relation to retirement
i) Having some control over retirement matters. Wellbeing is lower for people who are involuntarily retired. It's higher for those who have control over the timing or plan for their retirement.
ii) The job that a person had before they retire, as well as household factors, like their support network or spouse's working status, are key elements that influence the link between retirement and wellbeing.
iii) A 'bridging' job can act as a buffer to protect wellbeing during the transition into retirement.

In relation to adult learning outside of work:
i) Evidence from intervention studies supports the existing evidence that shows learning is positive for wellbeing
ii) Learning can have a range of wellbeing benefits, including, facilitating social contact, developing purpose, and enabling progression
iii) Hard outcomes, such as a formal qualification, and soft learning outcomes, like improved self confidence or social relations, are both important for achieving wellbeing impacts
iv) The learning environment is key, both in terms of learners achieving learning outcomes, but also as a source of support and to foster the social benefits of learning which contribute to wellbeing
v) For some, unstructured or informal learning may be more beneficial for wellbeing than formal structures
Exploitation Route Our work to date has concentrated on issues of relevant to the world of work, unemployment and adult learning. Therefore, our research could inform changes to employment and industrial policy, changes to managerial and professional practice, changes to organisational processes and procedures and changes to adult and community learning and skills provision for the workless provided by the voluntary sector.

Description Through various fora, we have had chance to inform policy, public and practitioners audiences of the benefits of wellbeing, the determinants of wellbeing and how wellbeing may be enhanced. Specific examples are given elsewhere in the submission, but have ranged from very high levels of central Government (briefings for No.10), central Government departments through local government agencies (e.g. LEPs), the third sector and professional institutions, management practitioners and the general public. Dissemination has involved multiple activities, including involvement in project steering groups, presentation at public and professional workshops, social media, establishment of a Eastern Regional Task Force for workplace wellbeing etc. A key challenge is to demonstrate tangible actions made on the basis of the research. Involvement with project steering groups will help in this respect (e.g. involvement in ISO 45000 links to changes in guidance issued by an influential and trusted organisation). In the fourth year of funding, we have had direct engagement with civil servants from BEIS, DWP and professional institutions (Society of Occupational Medicine, Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development) on project steering groups.
