European Foundation's European Working Conditions Survey
The Foundation's European working conditions surveys, conducted every five years, have been providing a unique insight into quality-of-work issues since 1990. In this fourth survey, interviews were conducted in late 2005 with nearly 30,000 workers in 31 countries (the EU25, the two acceding countries of Bulgaria and Romania, as well as Croatia, Turkey, Switzerland and Norway).
The survey covers a wide range of topics, including physical risks, working time, work organisation, employability, work satisfaction, health outcomes, absenteeism, work sustainability, work-life balance, violence and harassment and job performance.
