Living, working and COVID-19

Eurofound’s e-survey, Living, working and COVID-19, aims to capture the far-reaching implications of the COVID-19 pandemic for the labour market, working conditions and quality of life across the EU. Two rounds of this unique survey have been carried out to date, allowing for comparison between the first round in April, when most Member States were in lockdown, and the second round in July, when society and economies were slowly re-opening. The full report is now available.


  • The ECS 2019 collects information from over 21,000 human resources managers and more than 3,000 employee representatives in the 27 EU Member States and the UK. It investigates workplace practices linked with work organisation, human resource management, skills use, skills strategies, digitalisation, direct employee participation and social dialogue.
