This report examines the upward and downward trends in job quality across the EU from 1995 to 2010. The improvement and harmonisation of working conditions are core objectives of the European Union, but many factors affect job quality. The report determines the statistical significance of trends in key dimensions of job quality and maps the patterns of convergence and divergence. It offers an up-to-date analysis of changes in job quality across the EU, providing new insights to inform policymaking. The study concludes that dedicated political effort is still needed to improve job quality since this does not appear to be an automatic consequence of economic or technological development.

    Konvergens och divergens i fråga om arbetskvalitet i Europa 1995–2010

    Författare: 
    Eurofound

    ​I den här rapporten granskas uppåt- och nedåtgående trender i fråga om arbetskvalitet i EU mellan 1995 och 2010. Att förbättra och harmonisera arbetsvillkoren är ett av EU:s viktigaste mål, men det är många faktorer som påverkar arbetskvaliteten. I rapporten fastställs den statistiska signifikansen av trender inom centrala aspekter av arbetskvalitet och mönster i fråga om konvergens och divergens kartläggs. Den ger en aktuell analys av förändringarna av arbetskvaliteten i hela EU, och ger nya insikter som kan ligga till grund för politiskt beslutsfattande. Sammanfattningsvis konstateras att det fortfarande behövs resoluta politiska åtgärder eftersom en bättre arbetskvalitet inte tycks följa automatiskt på ekonomisk eller teknisk utveckling.
