Research published today (February 1st) by the Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development (CIPD) analyses the differences between the country's professional sector when the Queen came to the throne in 1952 and the present day.
The report - which was conducted to mark the monarch's Diamond Jubilee year - unsurprisingly showed a raft of dramatic changes that have occurred during this period.
For instance, the number of people in jobs has gone up by six million, with 25 per cent of these being employed in part-time positions - a marked upturn on the four per cent recorded in 1952.
And John Philpott - chief economic adviser at the CIPD, which has more than 135,000 members - said the increased threat of unemployment these days means "people do not seem much happier about their working lives and many exhibit the symptoms of work-related stress".
