Work orientations and perceived working conditions across countries: results from the 2015 ISSP survey

Hannah Volk, Markus Hadler

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

This contribution offers an overview of the results derived from the 2015 ISSP survey on work orientations, which was fielded in 2015-16 in a total of 37 countries. The national surveys canvass random samples of the adult population and include questions for the general population and working respondents. Among the general population, we provide an overview of attitudes toward the centrality of work, desired working conditions, and the perception of harassment and discrimination. As for working respondents, we present results on their perceived work-life balance, job satisfaction, and characteristics of their current job, as well as their subjective employability and willingness to accept a different job.
