The report highlights four factors which are key to shaping the age structure of Europe’s workforce: ensuring career and employment security; maintaining and promoting the health and well-being of workers; developing skills and competencies; and reconciling working and non-working life. The findings show that improving working conditions leads to better job sustainability over the lifecycle, which in turn can prevent early exit from the labour market and encourage stronger participation rates among older workers. The analysis is based on findings from the fourth European Working Conditions Survey carried out in 31 countries, including the 27 EU Member States.

    Arbetsvillkoren för en åldrande arbetskraft - Sammanfattning

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Efter 2005 års undersökning utförde institutet ytterligare ingående analyser av dess resultat som gällde centrala teman som rör arbetsvillkoren i EU. Ett av de teman som utforskades var den allt äldre arbetskraften och de långtgående konsekvenserna för samhället och arbetsmarknaden i sin helhet. Studien framhävde fyra faktorer som är centrala för utformningen av den europeiska arbetskraftens ålderstruktur: att sörja för karriärutveckling och anställningstrygghet, upprätthålla och främja arbetstagares hälsa och välbefinnande, utveckla färdigheter och kompetenser, samt att förena arbete och fritid. Denna broschyr sammanfattar de främsta utmaningar som den allt äldre arbetskraften medför och ger en översikt av forskningens främsta resultat.
