Using data from the fifth European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS), this study measures job quality in the 27 countries of the European Union, as well as seven additional countries in Europe that participated in the survey. The intention was to find an objective means of assessing the principle established in a number of EU directives that work should adapt to the workers. Increased understanding of the social costs of poor job quality has focused attention on physical and social environments at work. Prolonged life expectancy and the ageing of the population suggest that jobs will have to be of good quality if more workers are to be persuaded to work longer. The indices constructed for this study do not rely on subjective measurement such as preferences and attitudes, but are built on the self-reported features of jobs that are associated with workers’ well-being.

    Тенденции в качеството на работните места в Европа: Резюме

    Автор(и): 
    Eurofound
    Въз основа на данните от Петото проучване на условията на труд в Европа (EWCS) настоящото проучване измерва качеството на работните места в 27-те държави от Европейския съюз, както и в седем допълнителни държави в Европа, които взеха участие в проучването. Намерението беше да се намери обективно средство за оценка на принципа, установен в редица директиви на ЕС, че работата следва да се адаптира към работниците. Все по-широко обсъжданата социалната цена на лошото качество на работните места насочи вниманието към физическата и социалната работна среда. Увеличената очаквана продължителност на живота и застаряващото население са признаци, че работните места трябва да бъдат с добро качество, за да могат повече работници да бъдат убедени да работят по-дълго. Показателите, разработени за настоящото проучване, не се основават на субективна преценка, например предпочитания и нагласи, а стъпват върху определени от самите работници характеристики на работните места, свързани с доброто им самочувствие.
