Abstract

This article examines employer choice in relation to job quality (JQ). Acknowledging the important role of market, institutional and technological constraints, we highlight the role of employer agency in shaping JQ by reporting on an employer-led service redesign initiative in hospital pharmacy services in Scotland. This redesign initiative aimed at upskilling employees and redirecting their work effort towards high value added, patient-facing work using robotics implementation. The article provides a critical assessment of the success of the initiative in enhancing JQ and explores a range of factors constraining and shaping employers' job quality choices.
