First results from Eurofound’s Living, working and COVID-19 online survey

The new pan-EU survey shows a Europe grappling to respond to the crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic with plummeting optimism, low trust levels, alongside rising fears of job loss and financial insecurity.

The survey findings also confirm an increase in telework and, for a growing number of respondents, a feeling of insecurity regarding their jobs with a dramatic decrease in working time.

Final results on the impact of these changes over time will be published in September. Eurofound is monitoring the evolving situation regarding measures taken by policy actors to combat the effects of the pandemic on living and working conditions.
