Résumé

Achieving work environments that make work sustainable over a lifetime is a key facet of the promotion of longer working lives. This study - based on the fifth European Working Conditions Survey - considers the dimensions of work that have proved essential to the understanding of work sustainability: working conditions; physical and psychological health; the expressive dimension of work; reconciliation of working and non-working time; and socioeconomic conditions. It examines the influence of these factors on how older workers perceive the sustainability of their work, taking account of differences between workers in terms of age, occupation and gender. In addition, the working conditions of the ageing workforce across Member States of the European Union are compared. An executive summary is also available - see Related content.

    Travail durable et vieillissement de la main-d'œuvre - Synthèse

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Des environnements professionnels propices à un travail durable tout au long de la vie sont essentiels pour favoriser la prolongation de la vie active. Cette étude s'intéresse aux dimensions du travail qui se sont avérées essentielles à la compréhension de la durabilité du travail: les conditions de travail; la santé physique et psychologique; la dimension expressive du travail; la conciliation vie privée et vie professionnelle; et les conditions socio-économiques. Elle examine l'influence de ces facteurs sur l'idée qu'ont les travailleurs âgés de la durabilité de leur travail, en tenant compte des différences entre les travailleurs en termes d'âge, de métier et de sexe. Une comparaison des conditions de travail de la main-d'œuvre vieillissante dans les États membres de l'Union européenne est également effectuée.
