This report explores the subject of work and family life across Europe, looking at ways to find a better balance between the demands of work and family responsibilities. Based on data from the second European Quality of Life Survey (EQLS), conducted by Eurofound in 2007, the report analyses tensions between work demands and household and care tasks, against a background of different institutional settings, labour market structures and cultural factors. The findings point to the need for the introduction of measures to adjust working arrangements to the demands of family life, more equal sharing of care responsibilities between men and women, and the improvement of care services for elderly people in order to support family networks in carrying out their care responsibilities.

    Secondo sondaggio europeo sulla qualità della vita: Vita familiare e lavoro - Sintesi

    Autore(i): 
    Eurofound
    Questa relazione analizza la tematica della vita familiare e del lavoro in Europa, cercando soluzioni per raggiungere un migliore equilibrio tra esigenze lavorative e responsabilità familiari. Le pressioni determinate dall'aumento della flessibilità dello status occupazionale (meno posti di lavoro a lungo termine e a tempo pieno), dall'orario di lavoro (orari non standard, lavoro più intenso) e dalla mobilità, nonché da una crescente precarietà dei posti di lavoro e delle carriere professionali, riguarda soprattutto le donne e contribuisce a creare tensioni tra vita lavorativa e familiare.
