EU Sources - OECD Job quality report - February 29, 2016

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OCDE) published a study on job quality. In the report, How good is your job? Measuring and assessing job quality, the OECD takes into account factors such as earnings, the working environment, and job security to assess the quality of employment in the various countries. The study focuses on the analysis of data related to these three criteria: the impact of income on employee’s well-being, job stability, and quality of the work environment. Looking at job quality outcomes across socio-economic groups provides new insights into labour market inequalities by shedding further light on the nature and depth of the disadvantages faced by some population groups. The worst of are youngsters and low-skilled workers.
