Number in employment reaches record high

Official figures released today (24 January 2018) show that the employment rate is at a joint record high of 75.3%, with a record 32.2 million people in work.

Published 24 January 2018

From:

Department for Work and Pensions and The Rt Hon Esther McVey

 

This is a rise of 415,000 compared to last year’s figures.

The figures, released by the Office for National Statistics, also show that unemployment is at its lowest level since 1975.

Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, Esther McVey, said:

“We had a record-breaking 2017 for employment, and I’m delighted to see this trend continue as we enter the new year.

The number of people in work is at an all-time high and the unemployment rate has not been this low for over 40 years.

At this time of year, straight after Christmas, people might be feeling a squeeze on their finances. We’re determined to help people keep more of what they earn.

That’s why we’ve increased the National Living Wage, introduced Universal Credit to offer greater flexibility and taken millions of people out of income tax altogether by raising the tax-free personal allowance.

In 2017, at least 10 employment records were broken. The employment rate and the number of people in work, the number of women in work and black and minority ethnic employment all reached record highs during the year.”

Today’s employment figures also show:

  • there are a record 810,000 vacancies in the economy at any one time
  • the number of people in employment has increased by over 3 million since 2010
  • the UK has the third highest employment rate in the G7
  • the number of workers aged 50 plus has reached a record 10 million
  • youth unemployment has fallen by over 40% since 2010

Separate figures also released today show there are 700,000 people claiming Universal Credit as the rollout of the new benefit continues, with 42% in employment.

MENTAL HEALTH TOOLKIT


There has been a lot written about how to tackle mental ill health and promote wellbeing in the workplace. This toolkit will simplify your approach.

 

Business in the Community has partnered with Public Health England to produce a free, online toolkit to help every organisation support the mental health and wellbeing of its employees. It will help employers take positive actions to build a culture that champions good mental health and provides a greater understanding of how to help those who need more support.

 

This toolkit will help employers pick out the most valuable resources, and help to develop an approach that works. For larger organisations, the toolkit is also a useful resource to share with businesses in their supply chain and across their network.

 

Every organisation has an opportunity to support and develop a mentally healthy workforce and it doesn’t need to be complicated – this toolkit will help you understand and act, step by step.

Unemployment remains at four-decade low

 

·       The unemployment rate was 4.3%, down from 4.8% for a year earlier and the joint lowest since 1975.

·       There were 32.08 million people in work, 325,000 more than this time last year.

·       More than 660,000 people are now receiving Universal Credit, with 40% in employment.

 

Unemployment is at just 4.3%, the lowest level since 1975, according to official figures released today – every month in 2017 figures have shown a fall in the unemployment rate.

 

The figures, released by the Office for National Statistics, also show that employment remains at a near record high, with 32.08 million people in work. There are also a record number of vacancies (798,000) in the economy at any one time.

 

Separate figures also released yesterday show there are 660,000 people now receiving Universal Credit (UC), as the rollout of the new benefit continues. Research shows that with UC people are moving into work faster and staying in work longer than compared to the old system.

 

Minister for Employment, Damian Hinds said:

 

 

We’re ending the year on a strong note with figures showing the unemployment rate has fallen every month in 2017, and is now at the lowest it’s been in over 40 years.

 

Employment is at a near-record high, and there are over 3 million more people in work now compared to 2010 – that’s more than the population of Greater Manchester. Universal Credit is helping people get into work quicker, and ensuring they get more money in their pockets for every hour they work.

 

Universal Credit supports both the unemployed and the low paid, as people don’t have to end their benefit claim when they find a job. This is especially important at this time of year, when many people take on temporary seasonal work.”

 

Today’s employment figures also show:

 

·       The number of people in employment has increased by over 3 million since 2010.

·       Youth unemployment has fallen by over 40% since 2010.

·       The proportion of young people who are unemployed and not in full time education remains below 5%.

Unemployment remains at 40-year low

·         Unemployment is down 59,000 on the quarter and is the lowest rate since 1975

·         Employment rate is at a near record of 75.0% with 32 million people in work

Official figures show that unemployment has remained at 4.3%, the lowest rate since 1975.

The figures, released by the Office for National Statistics, also show that employment remains at a near record high, with 32 million people in work.

Increases in full-time and permanent work are behind the figures. In the last year the number of people on zero hours contracts has fallen by 20,000.

 Minister for Employment, Damian Hinds said:

The strength of the economy is driving an increase in full-time, permanent jobs and a near-record number of people are now in work thanks to the Government’s welfare reforms.

When unemployment fell to 5% early last year, many people thought it couldn’t get much lower, and yet it now stands at 4.3%.

Everyone should be given the opportunity to find work and enjoy the stability of a regular pay packet. We’ve cut income tax for 30 million people since 2010, meaning people keep more of their money each month." 

Today’s employment figures also show:

  • The number of people in employment has increased by more than 3 million since 2010.

·         The UK has the 3rd highest employment rate in the G7.

·         The number of workers aged 50+ has almost reached 10 million - a record level.

·         Youth unemployment has fallen by over 40% since 2010.

·         There are a near record 780,000 vacancies in the economy at any one time.

·         The proportion of young people who are unemployed and not in full time education remains below 5%.

Separate figures out today show there are 630,000 people on Universal Credit, with 40% in employment.

 

Apprenticeship Diversity Champions Network

 

The Apprenticeship Diversity Champions Network (ADCN,) launched earlier this year, brings together a group of employers committed to putting social mobility at the heart of what they do, and ensuring that people from all backgrounds can access and benefit from apprenticeships.

 

Members, who include the BBC and Rolls Royce, have this month welcomed changes to English and Maths requirements which will make it easier for many disabled people to access apprenticeships. Further information on these changes can be found here, and they came fully into force last month.

 

Government, supported by the ADCN, is undertaking a raft of additional measures to support disabled apprentices. This includes working with employers such as Kent County Council and the NHS as part of a Pacesetter project to deliver supported apprenticeships, and trial what works in making apprenticeships more accessible.

In addition to this, DWP’s Disability Confident Scheme is being integrated into the Find an Apprenticeship site, and additional payments of £1000 are now available for providers and employers with apprentices aged 19-24 who have an Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plan or were previously in care. The new funding model maintains existing financial support to providers for apprentices with learning difficulties and / or disabilities of up to £150 per month.

 

 

The National Employer and Partnership Team would like to say thank you to all Employers, Trade Associations and Partners for the significant contribution you have made to the fall in unemployment, demonstrated in the figures.

OVER 3 MILLION MORE PEOPLE IN WORK SINCE 2010

  • Employment rate at record high 75.1% with a record 32.07 million people in work.

  • Unemployment down 57,000 on the quarter and is at lowest rate since 1975.

  • The number of people in employment has increased by 3 million since 2010, with over 75% of the increase being in full time work.

Official figures released today show the unemployment rate has fallen to 4.4% – the lowest level since 1975.

According to the Office for National Statistics, the number of people in work is at the highest level since records began in 1971. The record figures have been driven by increases in the number of people in secure work – over 75% of the increase in employment over the past seven years has been in full-time work.

There are now 338,000 more people in work compared to this time last year.

Minister for Employment, Damian Hinds said:

These statistics show that record levels of people are in work across the country and earning a wage, which is great news.

Over 3 million more people are in work now than in 2010, with seven in ten of these roles being in higher skilled work.

Over the past year the rise in employment has been overwhelmingly driven by permanent and full-time jobs, as employers continue to invest in Britain’s strong economy.

The task now is to build on this success through Jobcentre Plus and our employment programmes so that everybody can benefit from the opportunities being created.”

Today’s figures also show:

  • The employment rate is at a record high of 75.1%, with 32.07 million people now in work – an increase of 338,000 on the year.

  • This year has been a strong one for employment growth with 247,000 more people now in work since January.

  • There are a near record 768,000 vacancies in the economy at any one time.

  • The female employment rate is at a record high of 70.5%, with over 15 million women in work.

  • Youth unemployment is down by 394,000 since 2010.

  • There are more British people in work than ever before and around nine in ten people in jobs are UK nationals.

  • The UK employment rate is now the 4th highest in the European Union and 7.0 percentage points higher than the EU28 average.

Separate figures out today show 1.3 million claims have been made to Universal Credit. Of the 570,000 people now claiming Universal Credit, 39% are in work.

The Government recently announced up to £35 million of funding with Devolution Authorities across England for six new innovation employment pilots. These will help over 18,000 disadvantaged people into employment, and tackle long-term barriers to work and in-work progression.

Movement to Work


Movement to Work is an employer led initiative to support young people not in employment, education or training to move into training or jobs, through such initiatives as Work Experience, Pre-employment training. They offer opportunities in various locations and to support visibility of these opportunities the M2W .team have recently launched a new on line platform, which can be found via the following link http://www.movementtowork.com/young-people

Common mistakes employers make with National Minimum Wage


By law you must pay workers at least the appropriate National Living or National Minimum Wage depending on their age and whether they’re an apprentice. The current rates are outlined below and click here to find out more information for employers.

25 and over

21 to 24

18 to 20

Under 18

Apprentice

£7.50

£7.05

£5.60

£4.05

£3.50

Even if you are paying the correct minimum rates you should be aware of some common mistakes made when calculating worker’s wages which can result in not complying with the law. Examples include:

·         Paying staff at the wrong rate by failing to implement annual rate increases, missing birthdays and therefore not moving workers from one age band to another or making errors in applying the apprentice rates. For example, apprentices are entitled to the apprentice rate only if they’re either aged under 19 or aged 19 or over and in the first year of their apprenticeship. So an apprentice aged 22 in the second year of their apprenticeship, is entitled to the higher minimum hourly rate for their age band.

·         Making deductions or payments connected to the job, which take pay below the legal rates. For example, asking staff to pay for uniforms, tools and safety clothing.

·         Including tips, shift allowances or bonuses as a part of staff pay.

·         Unpaid working time, which essentially are additional hours worked but not paid. These can be regular periods of time such as time spent helping to shut up shop or clear security after an employee’s shift has ended. They can also be longer periods spent training or ‘down time’ waiting for example. Other common unpaid working time errors include travelling time if it’s in connection with the worker’s job, such as between assignments.

·         Worker status errors by mistakenly (or intentionally) treating workers as either volunteers, or self-employed. Whilst genuine volunteers and self-employed aren’t entitled to the National Minimum or National Living Wage, workers are sometimes being treated as such in order to circumvent legal employer responsibilities.

The Government is committed to ensuring all employers are compliant with minimum wage legislation and the effective enforcement of it and will spend a record £25.3 million on enforcement over the next year.

If HMRC finds that an employer hasn’t paid the National Minimum or Living Wage the employer will have to pay any arrears to the worker together with a penalty. The employer may also be named in the media.

HEADLINE NEWS  - Employment remains at record high rate of 74.6%

Official figures released today (12 April 2017) show that the employment rate is at 74.6%, with 31.84 million people in work – an increase of 312,000 on the year and the joint highest rate since records began in 1971.

The Office for National Statistics has also announced that the unemployment rate remains low at 4.7%. It has not been lower since 1975.

Full-time work continues to be the driving force behind the rise in employment. Average weekly wages grew by 2.3% including bonuses over the last year. Wage growth has remained above 2% every month since the beginning of 2016.

Secretary of State Damian Green said:

This is yet another strong set of figures, with unemployment at a rate that hasn’t been beaten since the 1970s and more vacancies than ever before.

More people are finding full-time jobs and average wages have grown yet again, meaning more families have the security of a regular wage.

However, there is always more to do. That’s why we’re creating a welfare system that rewards work through Universal Credit, which helps claimants keep more of the money they earn.

New help for employers to get the talent they need


 

Looking to fill skills shortages, diversify your workforce and boost productivity? A new official guide for employers has been launched in partnership with BITC to help you do just that - by focusing on increasing inclusion in your workplace.

 

Strengthening your workforce with talent from disadvantaged groups” is a step-by-step guide to help you review your recruitment practices and broaden your talent streams, to include candidates that are long-term unemployed, homeless, single parents or military veterans.

 

Evidence suggests these candidates bring fresh ideas and solutions to problems, go the extra mile to secure results and stay with their employer for longer.

 

Led by business greats Sir Richard Branson, Deborah Meaden and Simon Cowell, the #SeePotential campaign is now backed by over 100 businesses and is endorsed by the likes of the CBI, FSB, IOD and BCC.
