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.

    Segunda Encuesta Europea sobre Calidad de Vida:Vida familiar y trabajo - Resumen

    Autor o autores: 
    Eurofound
    Este informe explora el tema de la vida familiar y laboral en Europa, examinando cómo lograr un mejor equilibrio entre las exigencias laborales y las responsabilidades familiares. Las presiones dirigidas a conseguir una mayor flexibilidad en la situación del empleo (menos empleos de jornada completa y fijos), en las jornadas laborales (horarios no estándares, trabajo más intensivo) y en la movilidad, así como una creciente incertidumbre sobre puestos de trabajo y carreras profesionales, afectan en especial a las mujeres y contribuyen a generar tensiones entre la vida laboral y familiar.
