Abstract

Headlines Attitudinal data on the experience of work and the intrinsic quality of work in Wales are relatively rare. This Report offers unique insights into the stresses and strains of work, the attitudes of workers towards employment and who they work for, and the fear of job loss. • Working hours are shorter, and job-related stress and work strain are lower in Wales than in the Rest of Britain or London and the South East. • Workers in Wales attach greater importance to employment and exhibit higher levels of organisational commitment compared to other parts of Britain. • Perceived levels of job security are higher in Wales than elsewhere in Britain. However, the costs associated with job loss are greater in Wales reflecting the relative lack of comparable employment alternatives.
