Abstract: This working paper reports the ongoing research conducted
in the research project, The Quest for Well-being in Growth Industries: A
Collaborative Study in Finland and Scotland, under the auspices of Academy
of Finland research programme, The Future of Work and Well-being.
research project examines the contradictory pressures for policies and
practices towards both the inhibition and the enhancement of work-related
well-being that are likely in growth industries.
The overall aim is to
evaluate the development, implementation and use of work-related well-being
policies in four selected growth industries. These – electronics, care,
finance and accounting, and tourism – have been selected on the basis of EU
and national forecasts, and demographic and socio-economic trends in
standard and non-standard employment.
In this paper we aim to review the
survey that constitutes the second main phase of this research.
