Sommario

The report highlights four factors which are key to shaping the age structure of Europe’s workforce: ensuring career and employment security; maintaining and promoting the health and well-being of workers; developing skills and competencies; and reconciling working and non-working life. The findings show that improving working conditions leads to better job sustainability over the lifecycle, which in turn can prevent early exit from the labour market and encourage stronger participation rates among older workers. The analysis is based on findings from the fourth European Working Conditions Survey carried out in 31 countries, including the 27 EU Member States. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    Le condizioni di lavoro di una forza lavoro che invecchia - Sintesi

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Dopo l’indagine del 2005, Eurofound ha analizzato in maniera approfondita i risultati raccolti, concentrando la propria attenzione su importanti tematiche connesse alle condizioni di lavoro nell’UE. Una delle tematiche oggetto dell’analisi era l’invecchiamento della forza lavoro e le sue vaste implicazioni per tutta la società e il mercato del lavoro. Lo studio ha evidenziato quattro fattori che risultano cruciali per determinare la struttura d’età della forza lavoro europea: garantire lo sviluppo professionale e la sicurezza del lavoro; mantenere e promuovere la salute e il benessere dei lavoratori; sviluppare competenze e capacità; conciliare il lavoro con la vita privata. Questo opuscolo presenta in sintesi le principali sfide poste dall’invecchiamento della forza lavoro e i principali risultati dello studio.
