Understanding how working time is organised and how this is impacting on balance of work versus private life is of fundamental importance. This general statement is very much in accordance with the main objective of the Europe 2020 employment strategy, stating that at least 75% of the population aged 20–64 should be employed by 2020, necessitating in many Member States a significant increase in women’s labour market participation. Drawing on data from Eurofound’s fifth European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS), based on interviews with more than 38,000 respondents in 34 countries, this report documents the prevailing working time patterns of employees, the self-employed and lone parents across five country clusters. It also analyses the relationship between paid employment and domestic activities, work–life balance and working time preferences across the life course.

    Arbeidstijd en de balans tussen werk en privéleven vanuit levensloopperspectief

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Grote veranderingen die in de afgelopen decennia in de samenstelling van gezinnen en in de demografische structuur hebben plaatsgevonden, hebben in moderne industriële samenlevingen tot nieuwe behoeften en uitdagingen geleid. Globalisering en toegenomen concurrentie hebben een grote invloed uitgeoefend op productiemethoden en arbeidsorganisatie, evenals op de arbeidstijd en op de balans tussen werk en privéleven. Dit verslag, dat is gebaseerd op de vijfde Europese enquête naar de arbeidsomstandigheden, gaat in op grensoverschrijdende verschillen in daadwerkelijke arbeidsuren en de verdeling van arbeidstijd naar sekse, arbeidspositie, type huishouden en levensfase. Het bespreekt factoren die van invloed zijn op de balans tussen werk en privéleven voor individuen en gezinnen, en analyseert de kloof tussen feitelijke arbeidstijd en arbeidstijdvoorkeuren. Ook aan onbetaalde arbeid wordt aandacht besteed doordat wordt ingegaan op de verschillen tussen seksen over de hele levensloop wat betreft de tijd die zij besteden aan huishoudelijke en zorgverplichtingen.
