The changing definition of well-being at work is a 2013 blog posting that takes a look at what constitutes well-being at work.

We should be looking at more than just our working environment:

  1. Individual lives during work and outside of working hours
  2. Groups we are involved in, in work and outside
  3. At our organization, in its entirety
  4. The society and culture we live and grow in

Administrative data collection on violence against women: good practices is a 2016 publication based on a violence against women survey, commissioned by the European Institute for Gender Equality, published by the European Union.

Violence against women (VAW) is a violation of human rights. Its very nature deprives women of their ability to enjoy fundamental freedoms. In this context, EU institutions have committed to developing tools to measure the extent of VAW and to increase knowledge about its consequences.

From the 2012 Survey:

  • 33% of women have experienced physical and/or sexual violence since the age of 15 and in the last 12 months
  • An estimated 13 million women in the EU have experienced physical violence in the course of the 12 months before the survey interviews
  • An estimated 3.7 million women in the EU have experienced sexual violence in the course of the 12 months prior to interviews
