Quality Jobs Index
Poor quality jobs impact human lives and economies. Each year 2.7 million workers die from unsafe and unhealthy working conditions. 80% of workers do not feel engaged in their jobs, impacting individual wellbeing and costing companies a staggering $7.8 trillion in 2022, 11% of the world’s GDP.
And yet the benefits to providing quality jobs are huge: for the employee and employer alike. Good jobs mean good business. Businesses with engaged workers see benefits – from a 23% increase in profit to an 18% increase in productivity.
We’re launching the 60 Decibels Quality Jobs Index to enable employers to move beyond minimum thresholds of decent work, invest in employee productivity, wellbeing and motivation, and provide aspirational jobs. . The index offers a holistic tool to understand employees’ lived experience and measure impact across five dimensions: Pay & Productivity, Personal Wellbeing, Skills & Development, Motivation & Sense of Accomplishment, and Job Security, Rights & Representation.
