Résumé

The report highlights four factors which are key to shaping the age structure of Europe’s workforce: ensuring career and employment security; maintaining and promoting the health and well-being of workers; developing skills and competencies; and reconciling working and non-working life. The findings show that improving working conditions leads to better job sustainability over the lifecycle, which in turn can prevent early exit from the labour market and encourage stronger participation rates among older workers. The analysis is based on findings from the fourth European Working Conditions Survey carried out in 31 countries, including the 27 EU Member States. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    Conditions de travail d’une population active vieillissante - 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 le vieillissement de la population active et les vastes défis que cela pose à la société et au marché du travail dans son ensemble. L’étude a mis en lumière quatre facteurs essentiels à la formation de la structure d’âge de la population active européenne: assurer l’évolution de carrière et la sécurité de l’emploi; maintenir et promouvoir la santé et le bien-être des travailleurs; développer les capacités et les compétences et réconcilier travail et vie privée. La présente brochure résume les principaux défis posés par le vieillissement de la population active et offre un aperçu des principales conclusions des recherches.
