Resumé

The 2016 annual report from the European Restructuring Monitor (ERM) provides evidence of the employment impact of recent restructuring activity in Europe based on the European Union Labour Force Survey (EU-LFS) and the ERM events database. The thematic part of this year’s report centres on trends in both the offshoring and reshoring activity of companies in Europe, with a focus on the manufacturing sector. ERM data indicates that offshoring has never been a large source of job loss in Europe, and the analysis finds that offshoring started to decline after the global financial crisis and has yet to recover. It also finds that offshoring has increased in eastern Europe while it has declined in western Europe. Evidence of reshoring is limited; what evidence exists suggests that it is a relatively minor phenomenon. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    ERM's årsrapport 2016: Afmatning af globaliseringen? Ny dokumentation for udflytning og tilbageflytning af arbejdspladser i Europa

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Årsrapporten for 2016 fra Den Europæiske Overvågning af Omstrukturering (European Restructuring Monitor) indeholder dokumentation for, hvordan omstruktureringsaktiviteten i Europa på det seneste har påvirket beskæftigelsen. Denne dokumentation bygger på EU's arbejdsstyrkeundersøgelse (EU-LFS) og ERM-databasen over tiltag. Den tematiske del af dette års rapport omhandler tendenser inden for både udflytnings- og tilbageflytningsaktiviteterne for virksomheder i Europa, med særligt fokus på produktionssektoren. ERM's data indikerer, at udflytning aldrig har været en stor kilde til jobtab i Europa, og analysen viser, at udflytningen begyndte at falde efter den globale finanskrise og ikke er steget siden. Den konstaterer også, at udflytningen er steget i Østeuropa, men faldet i Vesteuropa. Der findes kun begrænset dokumentation om tilbageflytning, men den dokumentation, der eksisterer, antyder, at det er et relativt mindre fænomen.
