Enhancing job quality and promoting work that is good, fair and decent is now an explicit priority in each UK nation, as set out in the UK Government Good Work plan and the Programmes of Government in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
There is growing recognition that pan-economy labour market reforms must be coupled with sectoral strategies, which seek to tackle distinct issues and shape an approach that works in the industry context. The Creative Industries have the opportunity to be the first sector to develop a roadmap for advancing Good Work, comprising action by Government and Industry, over the long-term, and contextualised with the distinct challenges and policy priorities in each UK nation.
To support the development of this roadmap, the PEC is spearheading a major new review of job quality and working practices in the Creative Industries.
The Good Work Review will provide a rigorous and balanced assessment of the opportunities and the risks that creative work presents, developed with industry-wide stakeholders in each of the four nations, so that action can be more appropriately customised to tackle the most pressing and varied needs. You can download the Overview and Terms of Reference to find out more about the PEC’s Good Work Review.
This Call for Evidence seeks to kickstart a conversation about the quality of work in the Creative sector and how Government and Industry can work together to advance Good Work in the Creative Industries.
The PEC is keen to hear from a variety of stakeholders from across the sector and in each UK nation, including policy makers, industry bodies, unions, charities, subject matter experts, diversity champions, businesses and creative workers, particularly freelancers.
