Setting the Record Straight - how record employment has changed the UK

Posted 16.08.2019

This report , by Resolution Foundation, chronicles not just how the UK jobs market is different now from when it was last at its peak, but because employment is the economy for most people, how the economy and indeed how the country has changed in this time. It addresses some of the key questions being asked in relation to the employment boom.

Has the massive expansion in the amount of work come at the expense of job quality? Has the jobs surge ameliorated or exacerbated geographic divisions? Which occupations and industries have grown, and which have declined?

And has record employment improved prospects for people settled in the UK, or has it predominantly offered opportunities to people willing to move to the UK from abroad?


BBO is having a significant impact on individual lives, supporting people to increase their confidence, independence and achieve their employment aspirations.
