Recession 'doesn't mean all doom and gloom in the workplace'

According to the latest Workplace Employment Relations Study released today (January 23rd), while the recession has indeed had a negative impact on many aspects of the economy and the job market, there are still signs of improvement within the workplace.

While the survey revealed that in 90 per cent of workplaces, the senior manager responsible for personnel maintained that the crunch had some sort of negative impact on their place of work, it also reported that levels of job satisfaction have actually increased since the survey was last conducted in 2004.

Furthermore, the report showed that since then managing bodies are communicating more with their employees, there is more training available and staff have more autonomy at work.

TUC general secretary Frances O'Grady commented on the report, saying: "In such difficult times it is even more important that people have a voice at work," adding that it is good to see that there has been no decline in the number of employee representatives in workplaces.
