THE ELECTRONIC SURVEY

Our main goal is to formulate a joint Recommendation for decision makers based on the conference and the electronic survey conducted between 24 August and 15 September 2020.
With this, we also want to help to present the opinions and suggestions of the V4 countries on the highly important topic of “Women, Family and Career” in our countries, as well as in the forums of the European Union and the United Nations.

Research topic

In Europe, including the V4 countries, the proportion of older people in society is increasing.
The governments of the Visegrad countries consider family support when solving demographic problems and strengthening economies.
Environmental factors affect the functioning of families and the workplace opportunities of parents.
Labor shortages in the V4 countries, as well as aspects of economy and efficiency, are forcing countries to include mainly women in the labor market from the social groups that are still “in reserve”.
Despite the attempts in recent decades, no integrated strategic thinking could be observed on families, jobs and financing issues. During this period, the governments of the V4 countries formulated several measures to solve the problems. Some segments of the problems have been researched by several, but no questionnaire survey has been conducted on women’s employment, the family and work balance. At the same time, from time to time it is necessary to identify the problem, to follow and measure the tendencies, in this case to summarize the opinions and the expectations towards employees and employers in a wide-ranging way.
Immediately after the start of the research, impact of the Covid 19 pandemic on the labor market emerged as an identified problem. During this period, the economic situation changed, with governments introducing various subsidies for businesses in order to retain jobs. The impact of the measures will also be felt in the analysis of the questionnaire survey.
Based on the analysis of the questionnaire survey, a recommendation will be made to “fine-tune” the different programs, and the results are to be used directly in the world of work and in families.

Objectives

The specific aim of the research is to examine the expectations for ensuring women’s employment and the family and work balance. On this basis, professional recommendations will be formulated that offer a solution to creating a value-based balance. In addition, the research aims to highlight that the competence-based approach has been significantly validated not only in the world of work, but also in the functioning of families. The question may also arise as to how attractive starting a family can be for young people. During the survey it will be found out how the options and different measures, based on the questions asked, affect family foundation and women’s employment, family and work balance.

The aim is also to launch a dialogue and to form a shared opinion along common values ​​and interests, on the basis of which a joint recommendation will be made to promote women’s employment in line with the importance of family background.

Monitoring and verification of hypotheses.

Keywords: Family, childbearing, family and work balance, Work-Life Balance, V4 family policy, women's entrepreneurship, situation of families, employers' expectations, competence.
