    Full-time or part-time work? Working women in the European Union represent a crucial bridge between the labour market and the family system, according to the findings of the Employment Options of the Future survey. Analysis of the survey data, focusing on people in dependent employment, looking at both their present situation and their preferences for the future, provide valuable insights into the working time issues for the future employment scenario in Europe. Gender is the single factor that most influences people's working time patterns though age, education and personal economic situation are significant variables in relation to different working time issues. The part-time/full-time aspects of the survey indicate the continuing importance that part-time work holds today, especially for women employees. In most European countries, approximately three-quarters of part-timers are women.

This is one of the findings outlined in the forthcoming 2007 annual report from the European Restructuring Monitor (ERM), Restructuring and employment in the EU: The impact of globalisation.

For Europe’s policymakers, such differences present serious challenges as they seek to increase productivity, boost employment and improve the quality of work. In this context, understanding the conditions of work across the different EU Member States and other European countries is of fundamental importance.
