Connecting with Canadians
High quality jobs are gold – they mean lower turnover and absenteeism and improved productivity. Job quality could also motivate older workers to stay in the labour force or encourage highly skilled and valued workers to remain with an employer. CPRN has undertaken research that provides an integrated approach to better understand what people are looking for in a job and the importance of job quality for individuals, employers and public policy-makers. Some of the key issues explored by CPRN include the ageing workforce, employment relationships, healthy and supportive workplaces, work-life balance, and human resources renewal in government.
CPRN's innovative www.jobquality.ca website is a comprehensive Canadian source for up-to-date information on the quality of employment and why this matters to individuals and employers.
