THE QUALITY OF LIFE OF EMPLOYEES IN EU MEMBER STATES. ISSUES RELATED TO THE NATURE AND ORGANIZATION OF WORK (English version)
Revista Romana de Sociologie, 2011, vol. 5-6, 421-436
The quality of life of employees has become one of the main concerns of European employment policies in the last ten years, with the strategies that were developed taking into account the new emerging risks related to the changes in the way work is organized (flexible work arrangements, increased work intensity in order to meet deadlines, increased share of highly skilled non-manual workers, etc.). The article presents a comparative analysis between member states with respect to the quality of the life of employees, from the point of view of the nature and organization of work, focusing on one of the negative effects of overworking, especially in non-manual occupations in new member states, which has increased in incidence in the last years: stress.
