36 do not feel they are paid appropriately

first_imgMore than a third (36%) of respondents believe they are not paid appropriately, according to research by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).Its UK working lives: the CIPD job quality index survey report 2018, which surveyed 350,000 employees, also found that 70% of respondents receive an employer pension contribution of 6% or less, 18% receive between 7% and 10% and 12% receive an employer pension contribution of 11% or more.The research also found:44% of respondents believe that work positively impacts their mental health.39% of female respondents feel they are underpaid, compared to 33% of male respondents.53% of respondents who earn less than the full national living wage of £7.50 an hour feel they are not paid appropriately, compared to 12% of respondents who are paid three times the real living wage of £30.60 an hour for London-based employees and £26.25 an hour for employees working across the UK.72% of respondents are saving for a pension through their employer.50% of respondents who work in the public sector receive an employer pension contribution of 7% or more, compared to 24% of respondents who work in the private sector and 35% who work in the voluntary sector.48% of respondents have access to social employee benefits, such as Christmas and summer parties, 45% are able to take enhanced leave such as paid bereavement leave or emergency eldercare support.38% of respondents are provided with free or subsided food or drink as an employee benefit and 35% are offered healthcare and insurance benefits, flu jabs, dental or health insurance.30% of respondents can access transport benefits as part of their employee benefits package, such as free or subsidised on-site car parking, travel season ticket loans or a company car.24% of respondents receive wellbeing benefits, such as subsidised gym membership, massages or exercise classes and 22% can use technology benefits, for example a mobile phone for personal use or a home computer.28% of respondents have used enhanced leave benefits in the last 12 months, compared to 2% who have used financial assistance benefits.29% of respondents have experienced work-related musculoskeletal conditions in the last year and 22% have experienced anxiety or depression where work was a contributing factor.42% of respondents have access to flexi-time arrangements, 40% can work from home using normal working hours, 34% can reduce their working hours and 25% have the option to work compressed hours.56% of respondents are able to communicate to their employer via one-to-one meetings with their line manager, 47% attend team meetings and 37% give feedback through an employee survey.Peter Cheese (pictured), chief executive officer at the CIPD, said: “The government has been clear that it wants to improve job quality in the UK, but in order to create quality jobs you have to be able to know one when you see one. We have a record number of people in work, but we have to make sure that we have quality as well as quantity, and that means making sure every job is a good job. That is why we have undertaken the first comprehensive measure to help understand and clearly map job quality in the UK.“Headline job satisfaction is reasonably strong, and that is to be welcomed. However, it is clearly lacking for many people, and that headline masks some serious structural issues in the UK labour market.“Those in management positions are often overworked, which can not only lead to stress and poor mental health, but also means they are not able to manage their teams to the best of their ability. Stress in the workplace passes down, and combined with the concerning lack of training and development opportunities for those in low-skilled work, is a heady mix which needs to be better understood and addressed to enable better productivity and wellbeing across all organisations.“With employment levels high, challenges remain around productivity, and so organisations have to prioritise working smarter, not just harder. We need to ensure that we’re designing our jobs flexibly and in ways that best utilise the skills of the workforce, implementing positive health and wellbeing strategies, and tackling workplace cultures of stress and giving voice and support to our people. Alongside that, we need to give those looking to develop their skills the ability to do so, through workplace learning and wider investment in skills development to make sure we’re making the most of all the talent that people have.”last_img read more

Unfinished Sagrada Familia Finally Gets Building Permit After 137 Years

first_imgFor 137 years, construction has continued at Barcelona’s world-famous Sagrada Familia –and now it turns out that it has been done so illegally the entire time. That changed on June 7, 2019, when the Roman Catholic Church at last received the building permit for work on one of the city’s leading tourist attractions. It turns out that the building’s designer, Catalan modernist Antoni Gaudí, had asked for a permit in 1882 from the city council of Sant Martí de Provençals, which is one of Barcelona’s neighborhoods, but he never received an answer. His request was accompanied by a blueprint of the ground plans that he signed himself. He started work anyway, and never stopped.The Sagrada Familia viewed from Casa Milà, Barcelona, Spain. Photo by Bernard Gagnon CC BY-SA 3.0The permit, granted on June 7, 2019, officially allows construction to continue, with a projected completion date of 2026, according to NPR.   It is not only a prestigious but a beloved building. On twitter,  La Sagrada Familia said, “#SagradaFamilia is not like other churches. From the towers, in the heart of #Barcelona, it seems to want to unite all the men and women living in the city.”Sagrada Familia Nativity Facade. Photo by Sagrada Familia Official CC BY-SA 3.0Also of note is that June 10, 2019, is the 93rd anniversary of Antoni Gaudi’s death at the age of 73. “It was a historical anomaly that La Sagrada Familia did not have a license,” said Janet Sanz, Barcelona’s deputy mayor for ecology, urbanism and mobility, in an interview.Sagrada Familia Nativity Facade. Photo by Liam GantDespite so many decades of work, the Sagrada Familia is unfinished. Now that the building permits are in order, the consortium managing the construction of the UNESCO World Heritage Site says they can get to work on the second phase of construction, which will include finishing the narthex on the cathedral’s “Glory” facade. Coming work will also include bringing improvements to the areas surrounding the structure.Sagrada Familia interior. Photo by Francisco CornellaGaudí, whose brilliant works are found across the Spanish coastal city, dedicated himself to building the Sagrada Familia until he was killed by a tram in 1926. When he died, only about 25 percent of the total design, including the crypt, the apse walls, and a tower, was complete.Antoni Gaudi in 1910He had reportedly said at an earlier time, “There is no reason to regret that I cannot finish the church. I will grow old but others will come after me. What must always be conserved is the spirit of the work, but its life has to depend on the generations it is handed down to and with whom it lives and is incarnated.”Sagrada Familia under construction in 1905Since then a series of architects have indeed tried to finish the church according to Gaudí’s original  design. There have been a number of setbacks, however. After the Spanish Civil War broke out, the Sagrada Familia was vandalized in 1936. The sacristy was destroyed in a fire in 2011.Sagrada Familia under construction in 1915Antoni Gaudí was born in 1852 in the Catalan town of Reus, the son of a craftsman. In Barcelona, he studied architecture. He concluded his studies in 1878, a time when Catalonia experienced cultural and political rebirth. When Gaudi graduated, the director of the school Elies Rogent reportedly declared: “Gentlemen, we are here today either in the presence of a genius or a madman!”Related Video:The architecture website Arch Daily said, “Though he is widely regarded as a genius architect, his distinctive style stands as a singularity in architectural history—simultaneously awe-inspiring and bizarre, never fitting into any stylistic movement, and never adapted or emulated, except by those still working to complete his magnum opus, Barcelona’s famous Sagrada Familia.”Related Article: The Sad End of Antoni Gaudi – Hit by a Car and Mistaken as a BeggarGuadí loved nature. His fantastical style was informed by late 19th century architecture, when the requirement to follow strict historical styles was beginning to fall out of favor. “As such, Gaudí was able to take inspiration from Oriental styles, and was heavily influenced by the Revival Gothic architecture of the time. However, he believed that Gothic architecture was ‘imperfect,’ and began to infuse his work with a variety of motifs drawn from nature.”Nancy Bilyeau, a former staff editor at Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, and InStyle, has written a trilogy of historical thrillers for Touchstone Books. Her new book, The Blue, is a spy story set in the 18th-century porcelain world. For more information, go to www.nancybilyeau.comlast_img read more
