This report examines the upward and downward trends in job quality across the EU from 1995 to 2010. The improvement and harmonisation of working conditions are core objectives of the European Union, but many factors affect job quality. The report determines the statistical significance of trends in key dimensions of job quality and maps the patterns of convergence and divergence. It offers an up-to-date analysis of changes in job quality across the EU, providing new insights to inform policymaking. The study concludes that dedicated political effort is still needed to improve job quality since this does not appear to be an automatic consequence of economic or technological development.

    Convergence et divergence de la qualité de l'emploi en Europe 1995-2010

    Auteur(s): 
    Eurofound

    Le présent rapport examine les tendances positives et négatives au niveau de la qualité de l'emploi dans l'Union européenne entre 1995 et 2010. L'amélioration et l'harmonisation des conditions de travail sont des objectifs fondamentaux de l'Union européenne, mais de nombreux facteurs influencent la qualité de l'emploi. Le rapport détermine l'importance statistique des tendances au niveau des principaux aspects de la qualité de l'emploi et cartographie les modèles de convergence et de divergence. Il fournit une analyse actualisée de l'évolution intervenue au niveau de la qualité de l'emploi dans l'Union, ce qui apporte de nouveaux éclairages pour guider l'élaboration des politiques. L'étude arrive à la conclusion qu'un effort politique ciblé reste nécessaire pour améliorer la qualité de l'emploi, étant donné que celle-ci ne semble pas découler automatiquement du développement économique ou du progrès technologique.
