Job quality is a major focus of policymakers around the world. For workers, the enterprises that employ them and for societies, there are benefits associated with high-quality jobs, and costs associated with poor-quality jobs. This report – the result of a pioneering project by the International Labour Organization and Eurofound – provides a comparative analysis of job quality covering approximately 1.2 billion workers in Europe, Asia and the Americas. It analyses seven dimensions of job quality: the physical environment, work intensity, working time quality, the social environment, skills and development, prospects, and earnings, finding both important differences and similarities between countries. By analysing positive and negative aspects of job quality in different countries and societies, the report provides a way to look beyond national explanations, to see how some groups of workers are affected more than others and understand the particular issues for women workers around the world – in support of evidence-based policymaking to improve job quality.

    Arbeidsomstandigheden in mondiaal perspectief

    Auteur(s): 
    Eurofound

    Dit verslag bevat een vergelijkende analyse van de baankwaliteit van circa 1,2 miljard werknemers in Europa, Azië en Noord- en Zuid-Amerika. Hierin worden zeven aspecten van baankwaliteit geanalyseerd, waarbij zowel grote verschillen als overeenkomsten tussen de landen worden vastgesteld. Door de positieve en negatieve aspecten van baankwaliteit in verschillende landen en maatschappijen te analyseren, biedt dit verslag een mogelijkheid om verder te kijken dan nationale verklaringen om te zien hoe bepaalde groepen werknemers meer worden beïnvloed dan andere en om de specifieke kwesties voor vrouwelijke werknemers in de hele wereld te begrijpen en zo op feiten gebaseerde beleidsvorming voor het verbeteren van de baankwaliteit te ondersteunen.
