/This second annual review examines four key dimensions in working conditions and quality of work and employment: career and employment, health and well-being, skills development, and work-life balance. The report outlines relevant legislative and policy developments, and examines trends in the workplace. In terms of career and employment, employment rates are consistently rising for women and older workers, at least in the EU15, but progress is currently too slow to achieve the Lisbon targets. In the area of health and well-being, improvements regarding safety at work are reflected in the significant decline of serious and fatal accidents at work. The European social partner agreement on work-related stress is a further step towards achieving quality of work and employment. Looking at skills development, participation rates in lifelong learning have increased, particularly for women, although there was a drop in IT-related training. Under work-life balance, progress has been slow, due to a complexity of factors involved in improving reconciliation of working and non-working life, such as work organisation, working time arrangements, or provision of care facilities./

Education and training are increasingly important for better labour market performance. Along with the growing demand for skilled labour comes a constant need for updating of skills. One chapter  of the OECD Employment Outlook 2004  is devoted to the issue of adult training, and explores its impact on the labour market in OECD countries. The analysis attempts to evaluate the general and individual effects of adult education and training on labour market performance.  http://www.oecd.org/document/58/0,2340,en_2649_201185_31824570_1_1_1_1,00.html  http://www.oecd.org/document/62/0,2340,en_2649_201185_31935102_1_1_1_1,00.html
