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.

    Improving working conditions in occupations with multiple disadvantages

    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.

    Migliorare le condizioni di lavoro nelle occupazioni con molteplici svantaggi

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    La presente relazione analizza le condizioni di lavoro dei lavoratori - in particolare quelli mediamente o scarsamente qualificati e non qualificati - che svolgono occupazioni con bassi livelli di qualità del lavoro, come rilevato da quattro indicatori chiave: redditi, prospettive, orario di lavoro e qualità intrinseca del lavoro. Le ripercussioni della scarsa qualità del lavoro e delle inaccettabili condizioni di lavoro per tali lavoratori sono significative in termini di salute psicosociale e fisica, sicurezza del lavoro, equilibrio tra vita lavorativa e vita privata, carriera e, in ultima analisi, sostenibilità del proprio lavoro. La presente relazione, basata sui dati dell'indagine europea sulle condizioni di lavoro del 2010 e sull'indagine sulle forze di lavoro dell'UE 2013, presenta esempi di iniziative, politiche e misure adottate nei 28 Stati membri dell'UE per migliorare le condizioni di lavoro generali in queste occupazioni svantaggiate.
