Abstract

Achieving work environments that make work sustainable over a lifetime is a key facet of the promotion of longer working lives. This study - based on the fifth European Working Conditions Survey - considers the dimensions of work that have proved essential to the understanding of work sustainability: working conditions; physical and psychological health; the expressive dimension of work; reconciliation of working and non-working time; and socioeconomic conditions. It examines the influence of these factors on how older workers perceive the sustainability of their work, taking account of differences between workers in terms of age, occupation and gender. In addition, the working conditions of the ageing workforce across Member States of the European Union are compared. An executive summary is also available - see Related content.

    Одржлива работа и работна сила што старее - Краток преглед

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Постигнувањето работни средини што ќе ја направат работата одржлива во текот на животот е клучен аспект во промовирањето подолги работни векови. Оваа студија ги зема предвид димензиите на работата што се покажале неопходни за разбирање на одржливоста на работата: работни услови, физичко и психолошко здравје, изразна димензија на работата, усогласување на работното и неработното време и социоекономски услови. Го испитува влијанието на овие фактори за тоа како постарите работници ја согледуваат одржливоста на нивната работа водејќи сметка за разликите меѓу работниците во поглед на возраста, занимањето и полот. Покрај тоа, се споредуваат и работните услови на работната сила што старее во земјите-членки од Европската унија.
