This report explores the subject of work and family life across Europe, looking at ways to find a better balance between the demands of work and family responsibilities. Based on data from the second European Quality of Life Survey (EQLS), conducted by Eurofound in 2007, the report analyses tensions between work demands and household and care tasks, against a background of different institutional settings, labour market structures and cultural factors. The findings point to the need for the introduction of measures to adjust working arrangements to the demands of family life, more equal sharing of care responsibilities between men and women, and the improvement of care services for elderly people in order to support family networks in carrying out their care responsibilities.

    Deuxième enquête européenne sur la qualité de vie: Vie de famille et travail - Note de synthèse

    Auteur(s): 
    Eurofound
    Le présent rapport étudie le thème de la vie de famille et du travail dans l’ensemble de l’Europe et cherche des solutions permettant de trouver un meilleur équilibre entre les exigences professionnelles et les responsabilités familiales. Les pressions en faveur d’une augmentation de la flexibilité du statut de l’emploi (moins d’emplois à long terme et à plein temps), des heures de travail (horaires atypiques, travail plus intense) et de la mobilité, ainsi qu’une incertitude croissante concernant les emplois et les carrières professionnelles, touchent particulièrement les femmes et contribuent à créer des tensions entre le travail et la vie de famille.
