Occupation is a critical factor in determining the type of working conditions a person will experience during their professional life. This report explores the working conditions of workers – particularly medium-to-low skilled and unskilled – in occupations that are found to have low levels of job quality as measured by four key indicators: earnings, prospects, working time and intrinsic job quality. The knock-on effects of poor job quality and unacceptable working conditions for these workers are significant in terms of psychosocial and physical health, job security, work–life balance, career path and, ultimately, the sustainability of their work. Based on data from the European Working Conditions Survey 2010 and the EU Labour Force Survey 2013, the report presents examples of initiatives, policies and measures across the 28 EU Member States that aim to improve overall working conditions in these disadvantaged occupations.

    Améliorer les conditions de travail des professions cumulant de multiples inconvénients

    Auteur(s): 
    Eurofound

    Le présent rapport examine les conditions de travail des travailleurs — en particulier des travailleurs moyennement à faiblement qualifiés et non qualifiés — qui exercent des professions considérées comme offrant une faible qualité d’emploi, telle que mesurée par quatre indicateurs clés: la rémunération, les perspectives, le temps de travail et la qualité intrinsèque de l’emploi. Les répercussions d’une qualité d’emploi médiocre et de conditions de travail inacceptables sur ces travailleurs sont considérables en termes de santé psychosociale et physique, de sécurité d’emploi, de conciliation de la vie professionnelle et de la vie privée, d’évolution de carrière et — à terme — de durabilité de leur travail. Sur la base des résultats de l’enquête européenne sur les conditions de travail 2010 et de l’enquête sur les forces de travail de l’Union européenne réalisée en 2013, le rapport présente des exemples d'initiatives, de politiques et de mesures mises en place dans les États membres de l’Union pour améliorer les conditions générales de travail dans ces professions cumulant des inconvénients.
