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.

    Cover image of Working conditions of an ageing workforce - Executive summary

    Following the 2005 survey, Eurofound carried out further in-depth analysis of its findings on key themes relating to working conditions in the EU. One of the themes explored was workforce ageing and its far-reaching implications for society and the labour market as a whole. The study highlighted four factors which are key to shaping the age structure of Europe’s workforce: ensuring career development and employment security; maintaining and promoting the health and well-being of workers; developing skills and competencies; and reconciling working and non-working life. This leaflet summarises the main challenges posed by the ageing of the workforce and presents a snapshot of the main results of the research. A report is available - see related content.
