Sommario

How to combine work with life is a fundamental issue for many people, an issue that policymakers, social partners, businesses and individuals are seeking to resolve. Simultaneously, new challenges and solutions are transforming the interface between work and life: an ageing population, technological change, higher employment rates and fewer weekly working hours. This report aims to examine the reciprocal relationship between work and life for people in the EU, the circumstances in which they struggle to reconcile the two domains, and what is most important for them in terms of their work-life balance. The report draws on a range of data sources, in particular the European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS) and the European Quality of Life Survey (EQLS). An executive summary is also available - see Related content.

    Trovare un equilibrio: conciliare vita professionale e vita privata nell’UE

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Come conciliare la vita professionale con la vita privata è una questione fondamentale per molte persone, una questione che i responsabili politici, le parti sociali, le imprese e i singoli individui stanno cercando di risolvere. Allo stesso tempo, nuove sfide e soluzioni stanno trasformando l’interfaccia tra la vita professionale e la vita privata: l’invecchiamento della popolazione, i cambiamenti tecnologici, tassi di occupazione più elevati e meno ore di lavoro settimanali. La presente relazione si propone di esaminare il rapporto reciproco tra vita professionale e vita privata per le persone nell’UE, le circostanze che si trovano ad affrontare per conciliare i due ambiti e cos’è più importante per loro in termini di equilibrio tra vita professionale e vita privata. La relazione si basa su una serie di fonti di dati, in particolare l’indagine europea sulle condizioni di lavoro (EWCS) e l’indagine europea sulla qualità della vita (EQLS).
