The Better Work map
The Better Work Network has recently launched the Better Work map.
The map has been created to locate progression-focused initiatives that are or have been in operation across the UK, including London. Its purpose is to increase the visibility of this valuable work, to help workers find local support options and to strengthen the networks between providers and stakeholders, enabling them to learn from each other and share best practice.
It includes a range of different initiatives, including:
- Individual support – support programmes designed to help low-paid workers to improve their employment situation through the provision of advice, support or training.
- Employer engagement - working with employers to support them to improve skills, pay or progression opportunities for low-paid employees within their business.
- Research and policy advocacy – projects which aim to improve the evidence base on in-work progression or aim to change practices to better support those in low paid work.
The Better Work Network is hosted by the Learning and Work Institute and Trust for London. It draws together those involved in initiatives addressing low pay and the quality of work in London and aims to build upon these ideas to bring real and long-lasting change.
