Understanding how working time is organised and how this is impacting on balance of work versus private life is of fundamental importance. This general statement is very much in accordance with the main objective of the Europe 2020 employment strategy, stating that at least 75% of the population aged 20–64 should be employed by 2020, necessitating in many Member States a significant increase in women’s labour market participation. Drawing on data from Eurofound’s fifth European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS), based on interviews with more than 38,000 respondents in 34 countries, this report documents the prevailing working time patterns of employees, the self-employed and lone parents across five country clusters. It also analyses the relationship between paid employment and domestic activities, work–life balance and working time preferences across the life course.

    El tiempo de trabajo y la conciliación de la vida laboral y familiar en las distintas etapas de la vida

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Los profundos cambios en la estructura familiar y demográfica ocurridos en las últimas décadas han creado nuevas necesidades y planteado retos a las sociedades industrializadas modernas. La globalización y el aumento de la competencia han tenido una gran repercusión en los métodos de producción y la organización del trabajo, así como en la conciliación de la vida laboral y familiar. En este informe, basado en la quinta Encuesta Europea sobre las Condiciones de Trabajo, se consideran las diferencias entre países en cuanto a los tiempos de trabajo reales y la distribución del tiempo de trabajo en función del sexo, la situación laboral, el tipo de hogar y la etapa de la vida. En él se examinan los factores que afectan a la conciliación de la vida laboral y familiar y se analizan las diferencias entre el tiempo de trabajo real y las preferencias declaradas. Se considera también el trabajo no remunerado, con especial atención a las desigualdades entre hombres y mujeres en cuanto al tiempo dedicado a atender obligaciones domésticas y cargas familiares en las distintas etapas de la vida.
