Resumen

Achieving work environments that make work sustainable over a lifetime is a key facet of the promotion of longer working lives. This study - based on the fifth European Working Conditions Survey - considers the dimensions of work that have proved essential to the understanding of work sustainability: working conditions; physical and psychological health; the expressive dimension of work; reconciliation of working and non-working time; and socioeconomic conditions. It examines the influence of these factors on how older workers perceive the sustainability of their work, taking account of differences between workers in terms of age, occupation and gender. In addition, the working conditions of the ageing workforce across Member States of the European Union are compared.

    Trabajo sostenible y envejecimiento de la población activa - Resumen ejecutivo

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Lograr entornos de trabajo que permitan la sostenibilidad del trabajo a lo largo de la vida es una faceta clave para fomentar vidas laborales más largas. Este estudio tiene en cuenta las dimensiones del trabajo que han demostrado ser esenciales para entender la sostenibilidad del trabajo: las condiciones de trabajo; la salud física y psicológica; la dimensión expresiva del trabajo; la conciliación de la vida laboral y no laboral, y las condiciones socioeconómicas. En el estudio se examina la influencia de estos factores en el modo en que los trabajadores de más edad perciben la sostenibilidad de su trabajo, teniendo en cuenta las diferencias entre los trabajadores por lo que respecta a edad, ocupación y sexo. Además, se comparan las condiciones de trabajo de la población activa de más edad entre los distintos Estados miembros de la Unión Europea.
