Kokkuvõte

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).

    Tasakaalu saavutamine: töö- ja eraelu ühitamine Euroopa Liidus

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Töö- ja eraelu ühitamine on oluline teema, mida üritavad lahendada poliitikakujundajad, tööturu osapooled, ettevõtted ja inimesed ise. Samal ajal muudavad töö- ja eraelu suhet uued probleemid ja lahendused: vananev elanikkond, tehnika muutumine, suurem tööhõive ja lühem tööaeg nädalas. Aruanne käsitleb Euroopa Liidu inimeste töö- ja eraelu suhet, töö- ja eraelu ühitamise asjaolusid ja seda, mida nad peavad töö- ja eraelu tasakaalustamisel kõige olulisemaks. Aruanne põhineb mitmel andmeallikal, eelkõige Euroopa töötingimuste uuringul (EWCS) ja Euroopa elukvaliteedi uuringul (EQLS).
