Abstract

Following the 2005 survey, Eurofound carried out further in-depth analysis of its findings on key themes relating to working conditions in the EU. The similarities and differences in men’s and women’s working environments was one of the themes explored. The research looked at many specific aspects of job quality – including working hours, job satisfaction, work–life compatibility and work-related health outcomes – in order to gauge the experiences of women and men in an ever-changing workplace. It analysed the gendered division of labour from the perspectives of both working life and home and provided insights into the working conditions of men and women in the 27 EU Member States. This leaflet summarises the main challenges posed by the gender dimension at work and presents a snapshot of the main results of the research.
