Sacker_01bWelcome to WorkLife, a blog about the relationship between work and  health and well-being of people, whether they are preparing for  working life, managing their work / life balance or preparing for retirement and life beyond retirement.

We are a team of researchers at the ESRC International Centre for Lifecourse Studies, University College London, tracking thousands of people’s working lives using a wide range of data sets, sources and information, asking important questions based on existing and emerging evidence on their health and well-being over time.

This blog is aimed at sharing our research with employees, employers, policy makers, trade unions, occupational health specialists, and other health professionals responsible for the wellbeing of the workforce. Its purpose is to make sure that what we find can be properly understood and taken into consideration when decisions that affect our working lives are being made.

In the coming weeks and months, we’ll be posting easy to understand summaries of recent and new research and keeping you up to date with key developments in this area.
