Info -

job quality


concept consisting of three dimensions: earnings, labour market security and quality of the working environment, and an important driver of increased labour force participation, productivity and economic performance

Context: Info

Job types represent different ways in which a number of job characteristics (such as contract type, working time arrangements, level of autonomy and repetitive tasks) can be combined. Job types are a powerful way to demonstrate that job quality is in fact a multi-dimensional reality. For instance, some jobs may offer a permanent contract but have more than average repetitive tasks and low levels of autonomy.
