The sixth European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS) builds on the lessons learned from the previous five surveys to paint a wide-ranging picture of Europe at work across countries, occupations, sectors and age groups. EU employment policy priorities aim to boost employment levels, prolong working life, increase the participation of women, develop productivity and innovation and adapt to the digital challenge. The success of these policies depends not just on changes in the external labour market but also on developing good working conditions and job quality. The findings from the EWCS draw attention to the range and scope of actions that policy actors could develop to address the challenges facing Europe today. The analysis explores the findings using seven indices of job quality – physical environment, work intensity, working time quality, social environment, skills and discretion, prospects and earnings – and categorises workers into five typical job quality profiles. Based on face-to-face interviews with 43,850 workers in 35 European countries, the sixth EWCS attempts to capture the multi-faceted dimensions of work in Europe today.

    Sixième enquête européenne sur les conditions de travail – Rapport général: synthèse

    Author(s): 
    Eurofound

    La sixième enquête européenne sur les conditions de travail (EWCS) se fonde sur les enseignements tirés des cinq enquêtes précédentes, afin d’offrir un vaste tableau de l’Europe au travail, englobant les divers pays, professions, secteurs et groupes d’âge. Les priorités de la politique de l’emploi européenne sont l’augmentation des niveaux d’emploi, la prolongation de la vie active, la participation accrue des femmes, le développement de la productivité et de l’innovation, et l’adaptation au défi numérique. Le succès de ces politiques dépend non seulement des changements du marché de l’emploi extérieur, mais aussi du développement de bonnes conditions de travail et d’une qualité de l’emploi satisfaisante. Les conclusions de l’EWCS attirent l'attention sur l'étendue et la portée des actions que les acteurs politiques pourraient élaborer afin de relever les défis affrontés par l’Europe aujourd'hui. L’analyse explore les constats à l’aide de sept indices de qualité de l’emploi (l’environnement physique, l’intensité du travail, la qualité du temps de travail, l’environnement social, les compétences et la latitude de décision, les perspectives et la rémunération), et classe les travailleurs selon cinq profils typiques de qualité de l'emploi. À partir d’entretiens en face à face avec 43 850 travailleurs dans 35 pays européens, la sixième EWCS s’efforce de saisir les multiples dimensions de l’emploi dans l’Europe actuelle.
