‘What Makes People Happy at Work? Insights from Quantitative Data’, Part of ESRC Festival of Social Science

This workshop is part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science (running 2-9 November). The FoSS celebrates some of the country’s leading social science research, demonstrating how the work of social scientists has an impact on all of our lives.

What Makes People Happy at Work? Insights from Quantitative Data

In this interactive, computer-based session, students will gain experience in undertaking quantitative analysis of leading social science secondary datasets to explore job satisfaction. The session will consider how and why job satisfaction varies according to a range of personal, employment, organisational and institutional factors. It will draw upon sociological, management and human resource theories to help you understand job satisfaction and why it is important, incorporating different viewpoints on the world of work in people’s lives, and how work can provide identity, purpose and self-fulfillment.

This workshop is designed for young people (ages 16-18).
