How has Covid-19 affected people's work-related wellbeing?
Having a job is really good for our wellbeing. Having a good job, one that gives us a sense of purpose, security, autonomy and where relationships and skills are fostered and developed, is even better for us. Conversely, the negative impact of unemployment on our wellbeing is one one of the biggest, longest lasting and most robust in the evidence base. Re-employment, especially within a year, just as strongly and robustly recovers wellbeing.
Most people’s jobs in the UK have changed in some way due to the Covid-19 pandemic and its response. Jobs have been lost, people have been furloughed, work places, equipment and PPE, commutes and job demands have all adapted to this ongoing crisis. We have been gathering evidence on how changes to our work, both positive and negative, alongside other wellbeing impacts, are affecting different people in the UK.
