New employee shakes hands with management

High rates of employment have been linked to positive health and wellbeing outcomes and a correlation between long-term unemployment and poor mental and physical health exists. Whilst Hounslow has above average levels of employment and economic activity, the borough still faces a number of challenges in relation to employment. There is a mismatch between skills requirements of employers and skills of residents. Young people and those from vulnerable groups still face barriers into employment and a high proportion of residents are in low paid, low skilled employment resulting in a reliance on in-work benefits.
