Eurofound’s report on ageing and sustainable working conditions published

Within the context of Eurofound’s concept of ‘sustainable work over the life course’, the Working conditions of workers of different ages report analyses these factors in depth for the 28 EU Member States using data from the latest European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS 2015). The report also investigates the conditions of employment for different age groups, linking them to work life balance, health & well-being and career prospects.

Key findings show that poor working conditions have a negative impact on sustainable work outcomes for all employees, regardless of age. Employees who are exposed to physical risks and quantitative demands are more likely to experience worse health and poorer work life balance.
