Resumé

The ERM Report 2012 focuses on the consequences of restructuring for employees. It examines which employees lost their job at the onset of the economic crisis, which of them found a new job and how both job loss and subsequent re-employment impacted on their overall life situation and satisfaction. It also looks at the impact on working conditions for employees who remain at the restructured firm. Both these studies, of those who lost their jobs and those who stayed at the restructured workplace, have never before been analysed by using common, EU-wide and representative, datasets. The report also provides an overview of recent restructuring using the ERM database. While restructuring cases reporting job loss have fallen since the peak of 2009, they still outnumber announcements of job gain. Several recent cases testify to serious problems in the once very promising alternative energy sector in Europe. The findings show that much of the recently announced job creation is in the hotels and retail sectors.

    ERM-rapport 2012 – Efter omstrukturering: arbejdsmarkeder, arbejdsvilkår og livstilfredshed - Resumé

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    ERM-rapporten 2012 har fokus på konsekvenserne af omstruktureringer for arbejdstagere. Det undersøges, hvilke medarbejdere der mistede deres job i starten af den økonomiske krise, hvem af dem der fandt nyt job, og hvordan jobtab og efterfølgende genansættelse indvirkede på deres generelle livssituation og livstilfredshed. Der ses også nærmere på indvirkningen på arbejdsvilkårene for medarbejdere, der fortsætter med at arbejde i den omstrukturerede virksomhed. Begge disse undersøgelser – af dem, der mistede deres job, og dem, der forblev på den omstrukturerede arbejdsplads – er aldrig tidligere blevet analyseret på grundlag af fælles, repræsentative datasæt for hele EU. Rapporten giver også en oversigt over de seneste omstruktureringer på grundlag af ERM-databasen. Selv om antallet af omstruktureringer, hvor der er rapporteret jobtab, er faldet siden højdepunktet i 2009, annonceres der stadig flere tilfælde af jobtab end jobskabelse. Flere nylige tilfælde vidner om alvorlige problemer i den engang meget lovende sektor for alternativ energi i Europa. Resultaterne viser, at meget af den nyligt annoncerede jobskabelse er i hotel- og detailsektoren.
