Kopsavilkums

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.

    Panākt līdzsvaru: darba un privātās dzīves saskaņošana ES

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Kā apvienot darbu un privāto dzīvi ir fundamentāls jautājums daudziem cilvēkiem, ko politikas veidotāji, sociālie partneri, uzņēmumi un fiziskas personas cenšas atrisināt. Vienlaikus darba un privātās dzīves saskarpunktu pārveido jauni izaicinājumi un risinājumi: sabiedrības novecošana, tehnoloģiju attīstība, augstāks nodarbinātības līmenis un mazāks darba stundu skaits nedēļā. Šā ziņojuma mērķis ir izskatīt apgriezti proporcionālo attiecību starp darbu un privāto dzīvi Eiropas Savienībā dzīvojošajiem cilvēkiem, apstākļus, kādos viņi cenšas saskaņot šīs abas dzīves jomas, un to, kas viņiem ir vissvarīgākais, lai panāktu darba–privātās dzīves līdzsvaru. Šis ziņojums ir sagatavots, pamatojoties uz dažādiem datu avotiem, jo īpaši Eiropas darba apstākļu apsekojumu (EWCS) un Eiropas dzīves kvalitātes apsekojumu (EQLS).
