Abstract

In the current EU debate on labour market and employment policies, the concept of ‘flexicurity’ – the balance between the flexibility and security needs of employers and employees – has emerged as a central issue. This report puts forward four key indicators to be taken into account in the discussion on flexicurity: objective job insecurity, subjective job insecurity, employability and vulnerability. The analysis is based on findings from the fourth European Working Conditions Survey carried out across 31 countries, including the 27 EU Member States. An executive summary is available.

    Il-kondizzjonijiet tax-xogħol fl-Unjoni Ewropea: Is-sigurtà ta' l-impjieg u l-impjegabbiltà - Sinteżi

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Wara l-istħarriġ ta' l-2005, il-Eurofound għamlet analiżi oħra iktar fil-fond tar-riżultati tagħha dwar temi ewlenin relatati mal-kondizzjonijiet tax-xogħol fl-UE. Waħda mit-temi mistħarrġa kienet is-sigurtà ta' l-impjiegi u l-impjegabbiltà (flexicurity - flessigurtà) u l-implikazzjonijiet l-aktar sinifikattivi tagħha għas-soċjetà u għas-suq tax-xogħol b'mod ġenerali. Ir-riċerka użat erba' indikaturi biex teżamina l-flessigurtà: insigurtà oġġettiva ta' l-impjieg; insigurtà suġġettiva ta' l-impjieg; impjegabbiltà, u vulnerabbiltà. Dan il-fuljett jiġbor filqosor l-isfidi ewlenin li ġġib magħha l-flessigurtà u jippreżenta stampa tar-riżultati ewlenin tar-riċerka.
