§ 16. Mr. John Evans
asked the Secretary of State for Employment what work is currently being undertaken by the Work Research Unit on job satisfaction; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. John Fraser
The Work Research Unit is currently in contact with a wide range of organisations in all sectors of432W industry and commerce. It is providing information and advice on the problems of job satisfaction; in an increasing number of instances it is assisting managements and trade unions in the planning and implementation of programmes of change. Other activities of the unit include arranging seminars and training courses, research and publishing reports and studies. The unit has been involved with the Tripartite Steering Group on Job Satisfaction, which I chair, in the preparation of a booklet "Making Work More Satisfying". This will be launched by the group tomorrow.
