Job Quality Measures

Policy or Initiative Description

Discussions on decent work should go beyond distinctions between standard and non-standard forms of work to consider the quality of jobs; governments should develop measures to assess this quality based on objective and measurable dimensions. This will focus solutions on improving the quality of jobs rather than simply the nature of the contract.


One approach developed by the OECD the compare job quality across countries looked at a series of dimensions, including earnings quality, labor market security, and quality of the working environment.
