The report highlights four factors which are key to shaping the age structure of Europe’s workforce: ensuring career and employment security; maintaining and promoting the health and well-being of workers; developing skills and competencies; and reconciling working and non-working life. The findings show that improving working conditions leads to better job sustainability over the lifecycle, which in turn can prevent early exit from the labour market and encourage stronger participation rates among older workers. The analysis is based on findings from the fourth European Working Conditions Survey carried out in 31 countries, including the 27 EU Member States.

    Arbeitsbedingungen einer alternden Erwerbsbevölkerung - Zusammenfassung

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Im Anschluss an die Erhebung des Jahres 2005 hat die Stiftung weitere eingehende Analysen ihrer Ergebnisse zu Schlüsselthemen in Bezug auf die Arbeitsbedingungen in der EU durchgeführt. Eines der untersuchten Themen war die Alterung der Erwerbsbevölkerung und deren weitreichende Auswirkungen auf die Gesellschaft und den Arbeitsmarkt insgesamt. In der Untersuchung wurden vier Faktoren hervorgehoben, welche die Altersstruktur der Erwerbsbevölkerung in Europa maßgeblich prägen: Gewährleistung der Laufbahnentwicklung und der Beschäftigungssicherheit; Schutz und Förderung der Gesundheit und des Wohlbefindens der Arbeitnehmer; Entwicklung von Kompetenzen und Qualifikationen und Vereinbarkeit von Beruf und Privatleben. In dieser Broschüre werden die wichtigsten Herausforderungen zusammengefasst, die sich aus der Alterung der Erwerbsbevölkerung ergeben, und es wird eine kurze Bestandsaufnahme der wichtigsten Untersuchungsergebnisse vorgestellt.
