Management and Wellbeing Practices Survey

The policy environment around flexible working, in-work support for parents and collective rights has changed substantially in recent years. Commissioned by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, the Management and Wellbeing Practices (MWP) Survey will provide up-to-date, nationally-representative evidence on employer practice in these areas, helping review existing policies and inform their future development.

The MWP Survey will provide updated evidence on employment relations and management practices in British workplaces, focusing specifically on flexible working, shared parental leave and worker representation.

The survey is nationally representative, including telephone interviews with around 2,500 employers across Great Britain. The design and administration of the survey is led by Kantar Public. NIESR is leading on the analysis and reporting of the survey data.

This research has been commissioned by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. The project began in 2018 and will be completed in spring 2019.
