Linguistic work quality index

Abstract: Work quality measures are fundamental to study population welfare.
Labour activity occupies most of the workers’ day, so quantifying people’s
welfare by means of work quality is central. Decent work indicators have the
aim of establishing the characteristics of an employment relationship to verify
that a job is carried out under conditions of freedom, equality, security and
human dignity. The purpose of these indicators is to measure the degree to
which a certain goal has been achieved in order to develop precise policies to
improve people’s standard of living. In this paper, a proposal is developed to
measure decent work deficit in a linguistic way. A complete decent work index
model is formulated using linguistic labels and the linguistic weighted average
operator. Finally, some comments are made about the benefits of using
linguistic variables when measuring work quality.
