Using data from the fifth European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS), this study measures job quality in the 27 countries of the European Union, as well as seven additional countries in Europe that participated in the survey. The intention was to find an objective means of assessing the principle established in a number of EU directives that work should adapt to the workers. Increased understanding of the social costs of poor job quality has focused attention on physical and social environments at work. Prolonged life expectancy and the ageing of the population suggest that jobs will have to be of good quality if more workers are to be persuaded to work longer. The indices constructed for this study do not rely on subjective measurement such as preferences and attitudes, but are built on the self-reported features of jobs that are associated with workers’ well-being.

    Les tendances de la qualité de l’emploi en Europe: Document de synthèse

    Auteur(s): 
    Eurofound
    À partir des données de la cinquième enquête européenne sur les conditions de travail (EWCS), cette étude mesure la qualité de l’emploi dans les 27 pays de l’Union européenne, ainsi que dans les sept autres pays européens qui ont participé à l’enquête. L’intention était de trouver un moyen objectif d’évaluer le principe établi dans plusieurs directives européennes, selon lequel le travail doit s’adapter aux travailleurs. Grâce à une meilleure compréhension des coûts sociaux d’une mauvaise qualité de l’emploi, l’attention est dirigée vers les environnements physique et social au travail. L’augmentation de l’espérance de vie et le vieillissement de la population s’assortissent de la nécessité d’améliorer la qualité de l’emploi si l’on désire persuader davantage de travailleurs de prolonger leur vie professionnelle. Les indices élaborés pour cette étude ne reposent pas sur des mesures subjectives, comme les préférences et les attitudes, mais sur les caractéristiques des emplois associées au bien-être des travailleurs, dont ces derniers ont fait état.
