Luxembourg - Quality of work surveyed - November 30, 2017

A representative sample of 1,522 employees took part in the fifth national survey on the quality of work. The results show that 72% of the respondents said they have an ‘average’ or ‘high’ quality of work; an increase compared to 2016 (68%). However, the outcome is quite unequal if the results are analysed per sector or per different aspect. For instance, satisfaction with pay has decreased.
