On 12 April 2012, a conference on 'Quality of work and Employment: A policy tool towards inclusive and sustainable growth' was jointly organised by the European Parliament and Eurofound, with the participation of Martin Schulz, President of the European Parliament and with the support of the Group of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats. The main findings of the series of European Working Conditions Surveys (EWCS), which have been conducted by Eurofound for more than 20 years now, were discussed, focusing on the current challenges for quality of work and employment and the need for a broader approach to sustainable and inclusive work when employment policies are designed. The overview report of the latest 5th wave of the EWCS was launched at the conference.
Eurofound’s European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS) paints a wide-ranging picture of Europe at work across countries, occupations, sectors and age groups. This series consists of findings from the EWCS 2010, the fifth edition of the survey. The survey was first carried out in 1990.
