How to combine work with life is a fundamental issue for many people, an issue that policymakers, social partners, businesses and individuals are seeking to resolve. Simultaneously, new challenges and solutions are transforming the interface between work and life: an ageing population, technological change, higher employment rates and fewer weekly working hours. This report aims to examine the reciprocal relationship between work and life for people in the EU, the circumstances in which they struggle to reconcile the two domains, and what is most important for ;them in terms of their work-life balance. The report draws on a range of data sources, in particular the European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS) and the European Quality of Life Survey (EQLS).

    At finde en balance: forening af arbejds- og privatliv i EU

    Forfatter(e): 
    Eurofound

    Hvordan arbejde og privatliv forenes er et grundlæggende problem for mange mennesker; et problem, som politiske beslutningstagere, arbejdsmarkedets parter, virksomheder og enkeltpersoner søger at løse. Samtidig er nye udfordringer og løsninger ved at ændre forholdet mellem arbejds- og privatliv: En aldrende befolkning, teknologisk forandring, højere beskæftigelsesprocent og færre ugentlige arbejdstimer. Denne rapport har til formål at undersøge det indbyrdes forhold mellem arbejds- og privatliv for mennesker i EU, de betingelser hvorunder de kæmper for at forene de to områder, og hvad der er vigtigst for dem med hensyn til deres balance mellem arbejds- og privatliv. Rapporten trækker på en række datakilder, navnlig undersøgelsen om arbejdsvilkår i Europa (EWCS) og den europæiske undersøgelse af livskvalitet (EQLS).
