Quality of employment
Employment plays a major role in most people's lives not only to secure their livelihood. The place of employment is where they spend many hours a day – often more time than is available for their families, friends and leisure activities. Therefore, for many people a "good job" is a major requirement for satisfaction and quality of life. Furthermore, efficient and innovative companies need motivated and satisfied employees.
Seven dimensions are distinguished to represent the qualitative aspects of employment:
Within those dimensions, the qualitative aspects of employment are represented by some 50 selected indicators. Here, you find background information on the calculation and data sources used for the indicators.
A synoptic presentation of the indicators on Quality of employment is available in the brochure "Qualität der Arbeit 2015 - Geld verdienen und was sonst noch zählt" ("Quality of employment – Earning money and what else counts", only in German).
