Flexibility and security in employment: Findings from the 2012 Survey of Working Life

This report presents findings, mainly from the 2012 Survey of Working Life, on non-standard employment, job security, and job flexibility in New Zealand’s labour market.

The survey is a rich source of information on the employment conditions, working arrangements, and job quality of employed New Zealanders. Topics it covers include the different forms of temporary work, length of job tenure, employees’ perceptions of job security, and flexible working arrangements.

This report examines this information and provides a picture of the diverse nature of New Zealanders’ jobs, and the degree of flexibility and insecurity they experience in their working lives. It aims to contribute to our knowledge about the changing nature of work in New Zealand and to inform debate and policy development related to flexible and insecure employment.
