Sažetak

New information and communications technologies have revolutionised work and life in the 21st century. The constant connectivity enabled by these devices allows work to be performed at any time and from almost anywhere. This joint report by the ILO and Eurofound synthesises the findings of national studies from 15 countries, plus the European Working Conditions Survey, to consider the effects of telework and ICT-mobile work (T/ICTM) on the world of work. The report shows that this work arrangement is growing in most countries. Positive effects of T/ICTM usually include a shortening of commuting time, greater working time autonomy, better overall work–life balance, and higher productivity. At the same time, disadvantages include its tendency to lengthen working hours, to create interference between work and personal life, and to result in work intensification, which can lead to high levels of stress with negative consequences for workers’ health and well-being. The ambiguous and even contradictory effects of T/ICTM on working conditions represent a current, real-world example about the challenges of the future of work. A range of policy suggestions to improve T/ICTM are made on the basis of the findings. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    Rad u bilo koje vrijeme na bilo kojem mjestu i njegov učinak na svijet rada

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Nove informacijske i komunikacijske tehnologije izazvale su revoluciju u načinu rada i života u 21. stoljeću. Stalna povezanost koju pružaju ti uređaji omogućuje obavljanje posla u bilo koje vrijeme na bilo kojem mjestu. U ovom zajedničkom izvješću Međunarodne organizacije rada (MOR) i Eurofounda sažeti su rezultati nacionalnih studija iz 15 zemalja i Europskog istraživanja o radnim uvjetima da bi se razmotrili učinci rada na daljinu i mobilnog rada uz primjenu IKT-a (T/IKTM) na svijet rada. Izvješće je pokazalo da je ovakva organizacija rada u porastu u većini zemalja. Pozitivni učinci uključuju kraće vrijeme putovanja, veću autonomiju radnog vremena, bolju sveukupnu ravnotežu između rada i privatnog života i veću produktivnost. Istovremeno, u izvješću se navode i neki nedostatci, a oni uključuju duže radno vrijeme, preklapanje posla i osobnog života i povećanje intenziteta rada koje može uzrokovati visoke razine stresa s negativnim posljedicama na zdravlje i dobrobit radnika. Dvosmisleni i čak proturječni učinci T/IKTM-a na radne uvjete ukazuju na trenutačno stvarno stanje u pogledu izazova za budućnost rada. Na temelju tih rezultata doneseno je mnoštvo prijedloga politika za poboljšanje T/IKTM-a.

    This series reports on the new forms of employment emerging across Europe that are driven by societal, economic and technological developments and are different from traditional standard or non-standard employment in a number of ways.
