Resumen

Occupation is a critical factor in determining the type of working conditions a person will experience during their professional life. This report explores the working conditions of workers – particularly medium-to-low skilled and unskilled – in occupations that are found to have low levels of job quality as measured by four key indicators: earnings, prospects, working time and intrinsic job quality. The knock-on effects of poor job quality and unacceptable working conditions for these workers are significant in terms of psychosocial and physical health, job security, work–life balance, career path and, ultimately, the sustainability of their work. Based on data from the European Working Conditions Survey 2010 and the EU Labour Force Survey 2013, the report presents examples of initiatives, policies and measures across the 28 EU Member States that aim to improve overall working conditions in these disadvantaged occupations. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    Mejorar las condiciones laborales en ocupaciones con múltiples desventajas

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    El presente informe analiza las condiciones laborales de los trabajadores (especialmente de los trabajadores con cualificaciones medias a bajas y sin cualificación) en ocupaciones que presentan bajos niveles de calidad laboral de acuerdo con cuatro indicadores clave: salario, perspectivas profesionales, tiempo de trabajo y calidad intrínseca del trabajo. La mala calidad del trabajo y las condiciones laborales inaceptables para estos trabajadores repercuten significativamente sobre la salud psicosocial y física, la seguridad laboral, la conciliación de la vida familiar y laboral, la evolución profesional y, en último término, sobre la sostenibilidad del empleo. Sobre la base de los datos de la Encuesta europea sobre las condiciones de trabajo de 2010 y la encuesta de población activa de 2013, el informe presenta ejemplos de iniciativas, políticas y medidas de los 28 Estados miembros de la UE orientadas a mejorar las condiciones laborales en estas ocupaciones desfavorecidas.
