Resumé

In the current EU debate on labour market and employment policies, the concept of ‘flexicurity’ – the balance between the flexibility and security needs of employers and employees – has emerged as a central issue. This report puts forward four key indicators to be taken into account in the discussion on flexicurity: objective job insecurity, subjective job insecurity, employability and vulnerability. The analysis is based on findings from the fourth European Working Conditions Survey carried out across 31 countries, including the 27 EU Member States. An executive summary is available.

    Arbejdsvilkår i Den Europæiske Union: Jobsikkerhed og beskæftigelsesevne - Resumé

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Efter undersøgelsen i 2005 gennemførte Eurofound yderligere dybdegående analyser af resultaterne fra de nøgleområder, der var forbundet med arbejdsvilkårene i EU. Et af de undersøgte områder var jobsikkerhed og beskæftigelsesevne (flexicurity) og de vidtgående konsekvenser heraf for samfundet og arbejdsmarkedet som helhed. Der blev i analysen brugt fire indikatorer til undersøgelsen af flexicurity: Objektiv jobusikkerhed, subjektiv jobusikkerhed, beskæftigelsesevne og sårbarhed. I denne folder opsummeres de primære udfordringer ved flexicurity, og der gives et øjebliksbillede af hovedresultaterne af denne analyse.
