This report explores the subject of work and family life across Europe, looking at ways to find a better balance between the demands of work and family responsibilities. Based on data from the second European Quality of Life Survey (EQLS), conducted by Eurofound in 2007, the report analyses tensions between work demands and household and care tasks, against a background of different institutional settings, labour market structures and cultural factors. The findings point to the need for the introduction of measures to adjust working arrangements to the demands of family life, more equal sharing of care responsibilities between men and women, and the improvement of care services for elderly people in order to support family networks in carrying out their care responsibilities.

    Второ истражување за квалитетот на животот во Европа: Семеен живот и работа - Резиме

    Author(s): 
    Eurofound
    Овој извештај ја истражува темата на семејниот живот и работата низ Европа, осврнувајќи се на начините за подобро урамнотежување помеѓу работните барања и семејните обврски. Притисоците за зголемена флексибилност во статусот на вработување (помалку долгорочни и работни места со полно работно време), работно време (нестандардно работно време, поинтензивна работа), мобилност, како и зголемена несигурност на работните места и професионалните кариери, влијаат посебно врз жените и придонесуваат за тензии помеѓу работата и семејниот живот.
