Monotonous and repetitive work: some people are more unequal than others
Over recent years, European workplaces have been subject to a high level of turbulence and pressure, due to digitalisation and green transformation. The COVID pandemic has reshaped working conditions, and led to hybrid work for some groups, and increasing health stress for those who cannot work from home. Various strategies to meet the new challenges have been developed by countries, social partners, and companies. All countries in Europe, whether or not they are members of the European Union, are struggling with the new uncer- tainty, and with social and labour market challenges.
The European Road to Sustainable Work must build on two perspectives: healthy and productive working conditions over the life-course, and the policies and measures to achieve a low carbon and non- fossil-based society and working life.
Recently, the book ‘Sustainable Work in Europe: Concepts, Conditions, Challenges’ was published. It builds on a special double issue 6.1-2, March 2021, of the European Journal of Workplace Innovation. Most chapters have been revised for this book, and some completely new chapters have been added. As a result, the book offers a broader European perspective on Sustainable Work.
In this PEROSH webinar, four authors comment on their contributions for this newly published book.
