Save the date: Launch event sixth European Working Conditions Survey – Overview report

The Changing working conditions in Europe: Moving towards better work launch event of Eurofound's sixth European Working Conditions Survey takes place on 17 November 2016

Venue: European Parliament JAN 2Q2, Brussels, Belgium

Eurofound will present its sixth European Working Conditions Survey at a conference in Brussels organised jointly with the European Parliament Committee on Employment and Social Affairs. This latest edition of the survey covers 35 European countries (EU-28 and Norway, Switzerland, Albania, FYROM, Montenegro, Serbia, Turkey) and examines issues ranging from work-related physical and psychosocial risks, working time and work organisation — to developing skills at work and lifelong learning, work–life balance, work and gender and health and well-being.

The survey presents the diverse picture of Europe at work and underlines the complex reality with which Europe’s policymakers are confronted as they seek to build a fair and competitive Europe. It also maps changes in work over time and provides the first comprehensive image of job quality in Europe since the Great Recession. Its aim is to help policymakers improve working conditions and share evidence on people's everyday scenarios at work.

The one-day conference will bring together up to 200 policymakers, social partners, academics and representatives from national authorities and the European institutions. Among the high-level contributors being invited to participate are Members of the European Parliament, the European-level social partners, the European Commission, the ILO and OECD, as well as Members of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) and the EU Employment Committee (EMCO).
