Abstract

Work plays a significant role in the lives of people, companies and society at large. Since its inception, the European Union has paid considerable attention to work, and improving working conditions is one of its key policy goals. The European Working Conditions Survey series (the ‘EWCS’) aims to: Measure working conditions across European countries on a harmonised basis; analyse relationships between different aspects of working conditions; identify groups at risks and issues of concern, as well as areas of progress; monitor trends over time; and contribute to European policy development, in particular on quality of work and employment issues. This report analyses the findings of the fifth European Working Conditions Survey, carried out in 2011-2012.  An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    Quinto Inquérito sobre as Condições de Trabalho

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    O trabalho desempenha um papel crucial na vida das pessoas, no funcionamento das empresas e na sociedade em geral. A melhoria da qualidade do trabalho e das condições de trabalho há muito que se encontra na linha da frente da política da UE, como se comprova na muitíssimo recente Estratégia Europa 2020 para um «Crescimento inteligente, sustentável e inclusivo». O Quinto Inquérito Europeu sobre as Condições de Trabalho (EWCS) analisa tópicos tão diversos como os riscos físicos, o tempo de trabalho, a segregação entre homens e mulheres, a conciliação entre vida profissional e vida familiar, a representação dos trabalhadores, a organização do trabalho, o stresse no trabalho, o desenvolvimento de competências e a remuneração, bem como a saúde e o bem estar. O inquérito define tendências das condições de trabalho, identifica importantes fatores de risco e põe em destaque questões que merecem ser alvo de atenção política.Com base em entrevistas realizadas a 44 000 trabalhadores em 34 países europeus, o quinto EWCS representa um muito considerável manancial de informação e análise sobre o trabalho em todas as suas dimensões na Europa dos nossos dias.
