This report explores the subject of work and family life across Europe, looking at ways to find a better balance between the demands of work and family responsibilities. Based on data from the second European Quality of Life Survey (EQLS), conducted by Eurofound in 2007, the report analyses tensions between work demands and household and care tasks, against a background of different institutional settings, labour market structures and cultural factors. The findings point to the need for the introduction of measures to adjust working arrangements to the demands of family life, more equal sharing of care responsibilities between men and women, and the improvement of care services for elderly people in order to support family networks in carrying out their care responsibilities.

    Den anden europæiske undersøgelse af livskvalitet: Familieliv og arbejdsliv - Sammenfatning

    Forfatter(e): 
    Eurofound
    Denne rapport ser nærmere på samspillet mellem familieliv og arbejdsliv på tværs af Europa og ser på måder til etablering af en bedre balance mellem kravene på arbejdsmarkedet og ansvaret i familien. Der stilles krav om større fleksibilitet i jobstatus (færre langtids- og fuldtidsjob), ændrede arbejdstider (uregelmæssige arbejdstider, mere intensivt arbejde) og stigende mobilitet, samtidig med at der er en stigende usikkerhed på jobmarkedet og omkring erhvervskarrierer. Det rammer især kvinder og er med til at sætte balancen mellem arbejds- og familieliv under pres.
