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.

    Sesta indagine europea sulle condizioni di lavoro - relazione generale: sintesi

    Autore(i): 
    Eurofound

    La sesta indagine europea sulle condizioni di lavoro (EWCS) si basa sugli insegnamenti delle precedenti cinque indagini per illustrare un quadro di ampia portata del mercato del lavoro europeo spaziando tra i paesi, le occupazioni, i settori e i gruppi di età. Le priorità della politica di occupazione dell’UE mirano a promuovere i livelli di occupazione, prolungare la vita lavorativa, aumentare la partecipazione delle donne, sviluppare la produttività e l’innovazione e adattarla alla sfida digitale. Il successo di queste politiche dipende non solo dai cambiamenti nel mercato del lavoro esterno, ma anche dallo sviluppo di buone condizioni di lavoro e della qualità del lavoro. I risultati dell’indagine EWCS richiamano l’attenzione sulla gamma e la portata delle azioni che i soggetti politici potrebbero intraprendere per affrontare le sfide che attendono attualmente l’Europa. L’analisi esplora i risultati usando sette indici di qualità del lavoro – ambiente fisico, intensità del lavoro, qualità dell’orario di lavoro, ambiente sociale, competenze e discrezione, prospettive e redditi – e divide i lavoratori in cinque profili tipici in relazione alla qualità del lavoro. Sulla base di interviste condotte di persona con 43 850 lavoratori di 35 paesi europei, la sesta indagine EWCS tenta di catturare le variegate dimensioni del lavoro odierno in Europa.
