The sixth European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS) builds on the lessons learned from the previous five surveys to paint a wide-ranging picture of Europe at work across countries, occupations, sectors and age groups. EU employment policy priorities aim to boost employment levels, prolong working life, increase the participation of women, develop productivity and innovation and adapt to the digital challenge. The success of these policies depends not just on changes in the external labour market but also on developing good working conditions and job quality. The findings from the EWCS draw attention to the range and scope of actions that policy actors could develop to address the challenges facing Europe today. The analysis explores the findings using seven indices of job quality – physical environment, work intensity, working time quality, social environment, skills and discretion, prospects and earnings – and categorises workers into five typical job quality profiles. Based on face-to-face interviews with 43,850 workers in 35 European countries, the sixth EWCS attempts to capture the multi-faceted dimensions of work in Europe today.

    Sexta Encuesta Europea sobre las Condiciones de Trabajo – Informe general: resumen ejecutivo

    Autor o autores: 
    Eurofound

    La sexta Encuesta Europea sobre las Condiciones de Trabajo (EWCS) se basa en los conocimientos extraídos de las cinco encuestas anteriores para ofrecer una visión de la situación laboral europea en los distintos países, ocupaciones, sectores y grupos de edad. Las prioridades de las políticas de empleo de la UE tienen por objeto impulsar los niveles de empleo, prolongar la vida laboral, incrementar la participación de las mujeres, desarrollar la productividad y la innovación, y facilitar la adaptación al desafío digital. El éxito de tales políticas depende no solo de los cambios en el mercado laboral exterior, sino también en el desarrollo de unas condiciones de trabajo favorables y de una elevada calidad del empleo. Las conclusiones de la EWCS llaman la atención respecto a la diversidad y el alcance de las medidas que pueden adoptar los agentes políticos para hacer frente a los desafíos que afronta Europa en la actualidad. El análisis examina las conclusiones sirviéndose de siete índices para tomar la medida de la calidad del empleo (entorno físico, intensidad del trabajo, calidad de los horarios laborales, entorno social, competencias y capacidad discrecional, perspectivas profesionales e ingresos), y categoriza a los trabajadores conforme a cinco perfiles de calidad del empleo típicos. Sobre la base de las entrevistas cara a cara mantenidas con 43 850 trabajadores en 35 países europeos, la sexta EWCS intenta captar las dimensiones polifacéticas del trabajo en la Europa de hoy en día.
