Work Across Life & Careers (WALC) is a large-scale, national research initiative that examines work and its impact on people’s lives and careers.

The research draws on people’s work experiences from early to late adulthood including all forms of employment, volunteering and household work.

By examining the long-term effects between work and personality, health and happiness, we better understand how the world and workers interact and change.

Our research findings build an evidence base for improving organisational and governmental policy and practice, to create good quality work for all.
