Sumar

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. An executive summary is also available - see Related content.

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Schimbările profunde ale structurii familiale şi demografice din ultimele decenii au creat nevoi şi provocări noi în societăţile industriale moderne. Globalizarea şi concurenţa din ce în ce mai mare au avut un impact major asupra metodelor de producţie şi a organizării muncii, precum şi asupra timpului de lucru şi echilibrului dintre viaţa profesională şi viaţa personală. Prezentul raport, bazat pe Al cincilea sondaj european privind condiţiile de muncă, examinează diferenţele transnaţionale în ceea ce priveşte programul de lucru efectiv şi distribuţia timpului de lucru în funcţie de gen, statut profesional,tip de gospodărie şi etapă a vieţii. Raportul examinează factorii care afectează echilibrul dintre viaţa profesională şi viaţa personală a persoanelor şi gospodăriilor şi analizează diferenţele dintre timpul de lucru efectiv şi timpul de lucru preferat. Munca neremunerată este, de asemenea, discutată prin abordarea diferenţelor între femei şi bărbaţi pe parcursul vieţii, în ceea ce priveşte în timpul de lucru alocat obligaţiilor casnice şi de îngrijire.
