How to combine work with life is a fundamental issue for many people, an issue that policymakers, social partners, businesses and individuals are seeking to resolve. Simultaneously, new challenges and solutions are transforming the interface between work and life: an ageing population, technological change, higher employment rates and fewer weekly working hours. This report aims to examine the reciprocal relationship between work and life for people in the EU, the circumstances in which they struggle to reconcile the two domains, and what is most important for ;them in terms of their work-life balance. The report draws on a range of data sources, in particular the European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS) and the European Quality of Life Survey (EQLS).

    Alcançar um equilíbrio: conciliar a vida profissional e privada na UE

    Autor(es): 
    Eurofound

    Conseguir conciliar o trabalho com a vida pessoal é uma questão fundamental para muitas pessoas, à qual os decisores políticos, os parceiros sociais, as empresas e os indivíduos estão a tentar dar resposta. Simultaneamente, novos desafios e soluções, como o envelhecimento da população, a evolução tecnológica, taxas de emprego mais elevadas e menos horas de trabalho semanais, estão a transformar a relação entre a vida profissional e a vida privada. O presente relatório visa analisar a relação recíproca entre a vida profissional e a vida privada das pessoas na UE, as circunstâncias em que lutam para conciliar os dois domínios e aquilo que é mais importante para elas, em termos de equilíbrio entre trabalho e vida pessoal. O relatório baseia-se num vasto conjunto de fontes de dados, em particular o Inquérito Europeu sobre as Condições de Trabalho (EWCS) e o Inquérito Europeu sobre a Qualidade de Vida (EQLS).
