How to combine work with life is a fundamental issue for many people, an issue that policymakers, social partners, businesses and individuals are seeking to resolve. Simultaneously, new challenges and solutions are transforming the interface between work and life: an ageing population, technological change, higher employment rates and fewer weekly working hours. This report aims to examine the reciprocal relationship between work and life for people in the EU, the circumstances in which they struggle to reconcile the two domains, and what is most important for ;them in terms of their work-life balance. The report draws on a range of data sources, in particular the European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS) and the European Quality of Life Survey (EQLS).

    Alcanzar un equilibrio: conciliación de la vida familiar y la vida profesional en la UE

    Author(s): 
    Eurofound

    Cómo compaginar el trabajo con la vida familiar es una cuestión fundamental que preocupa a numerosas personas y que los responsables políticos, los interlocutores sociales, las empresas y los particulares desean resolver. Al mismo tiempo, nuevos desafíos y soluciones están transformando la interacción entre la vida profesional y la familiar: el envejecimiento de la población, la evolución tecnológica, el aumento de las tasas de empleo y la reducción de la jornada de trabajo semanal. El presente informe examina la relación recíproca entre la vida profesional y la familiar de la ciudadanía de la UE, las circunstancias en las que tiene dificultades para conciliar ambas esferas, y a qué concede mayor importancia por lo que respecta al equilibrio entre la vida profesional y la familiar. El informe se sustenta en varias fuentes de datos de distinta índole, en concreto, la Encuesta europea sobre las condiciones de trabajo (EWCS) y la Encuesta europea sobre calidad de vida (EQLS).
