Resumé

Working time is a recurrent topic of study because the nature of work, its content, the conditions under which it is performed and the labour market itself keep changing. This report provides an overview of the recent evolution of working time duration and organisation in the EU and highlights the most important trends and differences between Member States. Through an in-depth analysis of data from the sixth European Working Conditions Survey carried out in 2015, it examines – from a gender and life course perspective – the links between working time patterns, work–life balance and working time preferences, on the one hand, and workers’ health and well-being on the other. Finally, the report explores the extent to which prevailing working conditions and working time patterns in EU Member States are sustainable in the long term. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    Arbejdstidsmønstre for bæredygtigt arbejde

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Arbejdstid er et tilbagevendende undersøgelsesemne, da arbejdets art, dets indhold, de vilkår, under hvilke det udføres, og arbejdsmarkedet selv er i stadig forandring. Denne rapport giver et overblik over den seneste udvikling inden for arbejdstidens længde og tilrettelæggelse i EU og sætter fokus på de vigtigste tendenser og forskelle mellem medlemsstaterne. Gennem en dybdegående analyse af data fra den sjette europæiske undersøgelse af arbejdsvilkårene, der blev gennemført i 2015, undersøger den – ud fra et køns- og livsperspektiv – forbindelserne mellem arbejdstidsmønstre, balance mellem arbejdsliv og privatliv og arbejdstidspræferencer på den ene side og arbejdstagernes sundhed og trivsel på den anden side. Endelig undersøges det i rapporten, i hvilket omfang de mest udbredte arbejdsvilkår og arbejdstidsmønstre i EU-medlemsstaterne er bæredygtige på lang sigt.
