EU workers: take part in the European Working Conditions Survey 2024

Home > The news of EUROGIP and occupational risks in Europe > EU workers: take part in the European Working Conditions Survey 2024

Eurofound has launched its 2024 European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS). The aim is to survey around 50,000 workers in 35 countries: the EU, Norway, Switzerland, Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia and Serbia. Make your voice heard!

For more than 30 years, the surveys have been taking stock of the reality of working life in Europe:

  • Assessing and quantifying the working conditions of employees and the self-employed in a harmonised way,
  • Analysing the relationships between the different aspects of working conditions
  • Identifying worrying working situations and/or groups at risk,
  • Monitoring areas for improvement.

This year, new questions will cover current key policy issues such as the future of work, teleworking, hybrid work, work-life balance, gender equality, as well as the implications of an ageing workforce, dual transition, digitalisation and decarbonisation. For the first time, the traditional model of face-to-face interviews with employees will be complemented by online interviews.

The first results of this series of surveys will be available at the end of the year. Eurofound’s Executive Director, Ivailo Kalfin, “encourages workers across Europe to take part in the survey and contribute to the development of policies to improve working conditions and job quality for all”.
