Abstract

This report outlines the current situation regarding work intensity, indicating a clear link between work intensity and poor working conditions, both physical and psychological. The analysis is based on findings from the fourth European Working Conditions Survey carried out in 31 countries, including the 27 EU Member States. The analysis reveals sharp variations between different Member States in relation to working hours and the associated gender gap, and points to the huge costs both for workers and companies arising from high work intensity.

    Il-kundizzjonijiet tax-xogħol fl-Unjoni Ewropea: Il-ħin tax-xogħol u l-intensità tax-xogħol - Sommarju eżekuttiv

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Ir-raba’ Stħarriġ Ewropew dwar il-Kundizzjonijiet tax-Xogħol (EWCS), imwettaq fl-2005 mill-Fondazzjoni Ewropea għat-Titjib tal-Kundizzjonijiet tax-Xogħol u tal-Għajxien (Eurofound), jindirizza temi li għandhom post għoli fuq l-aġenda politika tax-xogħol tal-Unjoni Ewropea. Waħda mit-temi esplorati kienet tal-ħin tax-xogħol u lintensità tax-xogħol u l-implikazzjonijiet għas-soċjeta u ssuq tax-xogħol b’mod ġenerali. Ir-riċerka ħarset lejn in-natura tal-intensità tax-xogħol u kif din tista’ titkejjel. Is-sejbiet urew li hemm rabta b’saħħitha bejn l-intensità tax-xogħol u l-kundizzjonijiet tax-xogħol ħżiena, kemm fiżiċi kif ukoll psikoloġiċi.
