Résumé

In the current EU debate on labour market and employment policies, the concept of ‘flexicurity’ – the balance between the flexibility and security needs of employers and employees – has emerged as a central issue. This report puts forward four key indicators to be taken into account in the discussion on flexicurity: objective job insecurity, subjective job insecurity, employability and vulnerability. The analysis is based on findings from the fourth European Working Conditions Survey carried out across 31 countries, including the 27 EU Member States. An executive summary is available.

    Conditions de travail dans l’Union européenne: sécurité d’emploi et employabilité - Résumé

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Suite à l’enquête de 2005, Eurofound a réalisé des analyses plus approfondies des conclusions sur les principaux thèmes relatifs aux conditions de travail au sein de l’Union européenne. L’un des thèmes abordés était la sécurité d’emploi et l’employabilité (flexicurité), qui pose de sérieux défis à la société et au marché du travail dans son ensemble. La recherche s’est basée sur quatre indicateurs pour analyser la flexicurité: l’insécurité objective de l’emploi, l’insécurité subjective de l’emploi, l’employabilité et la vulnérabilité. La présente brochure résume les principaux défis posés par la flexicurité et offre un aperçu des principales conclusions de la recherche.
