Sammanfattning

Achieving work environments that make work sustainable over a lifetime is a key facet of the promotion of longer working lives. This study - based on the fifth European Working Conditions Survey - considers the dimensions of work that have proved essential to the understanding of work sustainability: working conditions; physical and psychological health; the expressive dimension of work; reconciliation of working and non-working time; and socioeconomic conditions. It examines the influence of these factors on how older workers perceive the sustainability of their work, taking account of differences between workers in terms of age, occupation and gender. In addition, the working conditions of the ageing workforce across Member States of the European Union are compared.

    Hållbara jobb och den åldrande arbetskraften - Sammanfattning

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Att skapa arbetsmiljöer som ger hållbara arbeten över en hel livstid är centralt när det gäller att verka för ett längre arbetsliv. I den här studien undersöks de dimensioner av arbetet som har visat sig avgörande för förståelsen av hållbarhet i arbetslivet: arbetsvillkor, fysisk och psykisk hälsa, arbetets expressiva dimension, balans mellan arbete och fritid samt socioekonomiska villkor. Här tittar man på hur dessa faktorer påverkar hur äldre arbetstagare upplever hållbarheten i sina arbeten med hänsyn tagen till skillnader mellan arbetstagare i fråga om ålder, yrke och kön. Dessutom jämförs den åldrande arbetskraftens arbetsvillkor i Europeiska unionens medlemsstater.
