Structural change is a general characteristic of economic development, driven by shifts in relative productivity and demand, technological or socioeconomic changes. To adapt to a changing economic environment, companies undergo restructuring to maintain or improve their competitiveness and, hence, sustainability. While restructuring is essential to the dynamism of the European economy, it can entail difficulties for employees. The ERM annual report 2011 looks at the whole range of instruments available in the EU to mitigate the negative effects that it may have for both companies and employees and introduces around 400 of them in an online database. The ERM annual report also presents an overview and analysis of restructuring activities in Europe as captured by the European Restructuring Monitor (ERM).

Имаме удоволствието да представим нашия втори Годишник — Живот и труд в Европа за 2010 г. — обобщен преглед на представените от Eurofound данни от научни изследвания, проведени в помощ на политиката през 2010 г. Макар че годишникът няма за цел да представи цялостно дейността на Eurofound през последната година, в него са изложени основните констатации в някои от основните области на научни изследвания, по-специално резултати и анализ от проведените три общоевропейски проучвания, посветени на практиките на дружествата, условията на труд и качеството на живот.

23 November 2010 | Annual report
In the face of recession, falling demand and the consequent slowing of production, short-time working and temporary layoff schemes have been extended (or introduced) in many Member States. These schemes, often with the aid of public funds, reduce working time, while protecting workers’ incomes and company solvency; frequently, the time spent not working is used for training instead. This report examines the practice of reduced working time across Europe, and looks in detail at how it is implemented in 10 Member States, with a view to determining the contribution that such schemes can make in implementing the common principles of flexicurity, especially in light of the broad-based consensus they enjoy among the social partners.

Настоящият годишник си поставя за цел да открои основните изводи направени от Eurofound през 2009 г. Годишникът за 2009 г. е първият, който ще се публикува като част от четиригодишната работна програма на Eurofound „По-добра работа, по-добър живот“, той предоставя само частична картина на резултатите от проучванията, направени от Eurofound, като се има предвид обемът на работата, която се извършва всяка година. Обаче, както може да се види при бърз преглед на годишника, въздействието на рецесията доминира в различните области, обхванати от проучванията на Eurofound. Освен това периодичното обстойно проучване на Eurofound доказа своята стойност като показа промените, настъпили от началото на спада до момента.

22 November 2009 | Annual report
Over the course of 2008 and 2009, the world economy experienced one of the most serious recessions in modern times. In July 2009, 22 million men and women were unemployed throughout Europe, five million more than a year previously. Moreover, the situation may well still have further to play out: experience of previous recessions suggests that the full effect of the downturn upon employment has yet to materialise. Eurofound’s analysis of restructuring and job loss over the past year is collated and reviewed in this, the fourth annual report of the European Restructuring Monitor. Analysing the effects of the recession upon employment, it also looks in detail how particular sectors, countries and occupations have been affected, and examines a range of responses that have been taken to safeguard employment - at the company, Member State and European level.

This year’s annual review of industrial relations developments in the European Union, Japan and the US, as well as in the emerging economies of Brazil and China, is set against the background of the global financial and economic crisis that developed in the summer of 2008. As recession has hit countries worldwide, weakening labour markets and causing unemployment to rise, governments have issued stimulus packages to combat the crisis. This report explores the impact of the crisis on developments in industrial relations in the EU, Brazil, China, Japan and the US over the period 2008–2009. It charts the similarities and trends, as well as the differences in structure and developments between these five major economies, followed by an outline of priority issues for the social partners and a range of measures that could improve the global economic outlook.
