Supporting Covid-19 recovery. Do any of your clients work in retail, hospitality or care?
Norwich Business School is working with the Norwich Good Economy Commission on 'The Good Jobs Project' aimed at exploring ways to support managers and employees in Norwich to embed good experiences of work into the way they build back after the COVID-19 crisis.
Do any of your clients work in retail, hospitality or care?
Would they like to take part in the Good Jobs Project 2021?
It has been a difficult time for most businesses and the project is exploring ways to support Norwich managers and employees to embed good experiences of work into the way they build back after the crisis. The project has a particular focus on what good jobs look like for frontline workers – for example in sectors like hospitality, retail and care – who have experienced particular challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic.
To be able to deliver a successful project for Norwich, the Good Jobs Project 2021 needs to hear about what’s gone well for businesses, what’s been a challenge and what employers think is possible going forward to support employee wellbeing and productivity.
Call for employers to take part:
There are a few different ways for employers to be involved. Committing to one does not commit them to all, they can be as involved as they would like to be.
The Good Jobs Project 2021 are looking for employers who would be willing to:
- Discuss the experience of employing frontline workers in Norwich with one of their researchers. What are the successes and challenges of improving (or even just maintaining at the moment) a good employee experience of work? The discussion will take approximately 30 minutes via video or audio call and everything heard will be anonymised before being used in the research report, so the employer can be confident to speak openly about challenges as well as successes.
- Send out to their workers. The project would love to speak to frontline workers for 15-30 mins to hear their experiences too, so if the employer can invite people to volunteer they can take it from there.
- Give feedback on any ‘resource’ (video / poster etc) created for the project to support a good employee experience of work before they try to circulate it more widely in the city.
If you have clients in these sectors that would have a contribution to make to this important research, please share and advise them to contact Dr Helen Fitzhugh at email@example.com
