Abstract

This paper (1) explores workers' experiences of job quality in two economic sectors: manufacturing and knowledge industries. Drawing on comparative empirical research from three case studies in Poland, the UK and Belgium, it highlights tensions between the EU aspiration for 'more and better jobs' and the flexible strategies of companies reacting to market pressures. The objective of this paper is to explore employment security in the country context and to consider how organizations deliver job security in terms of workers' contractual status and its effects on job quality.

Item Type: Conference contribution
Description: (1) The paper is a collaborative effort by members of Marie Curie Changing Employment Programme, Theme 3 "Employee Wellbeing and Work Life Quality", and presents the initial findings of three research projects conducted within Theme 3.
