Samenvatting

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.

    Following the 2005 survey, Eurofound carried out further indepth analysis of its findings on key themes relating to working conditions in the EU. One of the themes explored was employment security and employability (flexicurity) and its far-reaching implications for society and the labour market as a whole. The research used four indicators to examine flexicurity: objective job insecurity, subjective job insecurity, employability, and vulnerability. This leaflet summarises the main challenges posed by flexicurity and presents a snapshot of the main results of the research.
