Job quality is a major focus of policymakers around the world. For workers, the enterprises that employ them and for societies, there are benefits associated with high-quality jobs, and costs associated with poor-quality jobs. This report – the result of a pioneering project by the International Labour Organization and Eurofound – provides a comparative analysis of job quality covering approximately 1.2 billion workers in Europe, Asia and the Americas. It analyses seven dimensions of job quality: the physical environment, work intensity, working time quality, the social environment, skills and development, prospects, and earnings, finding both important differences and similarities between countries. By analysing positive and negative aspects of job quality in different countries and societies, the report provides a way to look beyond national explanations, to see how some groups of workers are affected more than others and understand the particular issues for women workers around the world – in support of evidence-based policymaking to improve job quality.

    Условия на труд в глобална перспектива

    Автор(и): 
    Eurofound

    Докладът представя сравнителен анализ на качеството на работните места, като обхваща приблизително 1,2 млрд. работници в Европа, Азия и Северна и Южна Америка. В него са анализирани седем величини за качеството на работните места, като са установени важни различия и прилики между отделните държави. Чрез анализиране на положителните и отрицателните аспекти на качеството на работните места в различните държави и общества, докладът предоставя начин да се надхвърлят националните обяснения, да се разгледа как някои групи работници са засегнати повече от други и да се разберат конкретните проблеми, пред които са изправени жените работници по целия свят — в подкрепа на основаното на факти разработване на политики с цел подобряване на качеството на работните места.
