Kopsavilkums

New information and communications technologies have revolutionised work and life in the 21st century. The constant connectivity enabled by these devices allows work to be performed at any time and from almost anywhere. This joint report by the ILO and Eurofound synthesises the findings of national studies from 15 countries, plus the European Working Conditions Survey, to consider the effects of telework and ICT-mobile work (T/ICTM) on the world of work. The report shows that this work arrangement is growing in most countries. Positive effects of T/ICTM usually include a shortening of commuting time, greater working time autonomy, better overall work–life balance, and higher productivity. At the same time, disadvantages include its tendency to lengthen working hours, to create interference between work and personal life, and to result in work intensification, which can lead to high levels of stress with negative consequences for workers’ health and well-being. The ambiguous and even contradictory effects of T/ICTM on working conditions represent a current, real-world example about the challenges of the future of work. A range of policy suggestions to improve T/ICTM are made on the basis of the findings. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    Darbs jebkurā laikā, jebkurā vietā un tā ietekme uz darba pasauli

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Jaunās informācijas un komunikācijas tehnoloģijas 21. gadsimtā ir radikāli mainījušas cilvēku darbu un dzīvi. Pastāvīgā savienojamība, ko nodrošina šīs ierīces, ļauj cilvēkiem strādāt jebkurā laikā un no gandrīz jebkuras vietas. Šajā ILO un Eurofound kopīgajā ziņojumā ir apkopoti 15 valstu pētījumu un Eiropas darba apstākļu apsekojuma konstatējumi, lai izvērtētu teledarba un IKT mobilā darba (T/IKTM) ietekmi uz darba pasauli. No ziņojuma izriet, ka vairumā valstu šā darba režīma izplatība palielinās. Tā pozitīvā ietekme ietver ceļā uz darbu un atpakaļ pavadītā laika samazinājumu, lielāku darba laika autonomiju, kopumā uzlabotu darba un privātās dzīves līdzsvaru un lielāku produktivitāti. Vienlaikus tiek ziņots par trūkumiem, piemēram, garākām darba stundām, darba un privātās dzīves pārklāšanos un darba intensifikāciju, kas var paaugstināt stresa līmeni, negatīvi ietekmējot darbinieku veselību un labjutību. T/IKTM neskaidrā un pat pretrunīgā ietekme uz darba apstākļiem atspoguļo pašreizējo ikdienas situāciju, sniedzot ieskatu darba nākotnes problēmās. Pamatojoties uz konstatējumiem, ziņojumā ir sniegti vairāki politikas ieteikumi T/IKTM uzlabošanai.

  • New forms of employment

    This series reports on the new forms of employment emerging across Europe that are driven by societal, economic and technological developments and are different from traditional standard or non-standard employment in a number of ways.
