Væsentlige konklusioner

  • Den europæiske virksomhedsundersøgelse for 2019 viser, at virksomhederne kan udforme deres praksis på arbejdspladsen, så den bidrager til at skabe resultater, der kommer både arbejdstagere og arbejdsgivere til gode. Virksomhederne kan forbedre deres resultater, samtidig med at de forbedrer arbejdstagernes jobkvalitet ved at samle praksisser, der øger medarbejdernes selvstændighed og medindflydelse, og fremmer uddannelse og læring.

  • Den europæiske virksomhedsundersøgelse for 2019 viser, at virksomhederne kan udforme deres praksis på arbejdspladsen, så den bidrager til at skabe resultater, der kommer både arbejdstagere og arbejdsgivere til gode. Virksomhederne kan forbedre deres resultater, samtidig med at de forbedrer arbejdstagernes jobkvalitet ved at samle praksisser, der øger medarbejdernes selvstændighed og medindflydelse, og fremmer uddannelse og læring.
  • På omkring en femtedel af EU's arbejdspladser finder vi disse fordelagtige "praksispakker". Vellykkede eksempler findes på tværs af alle typer virksomheder uanset land, størrelse, sektor eller konkurrenceevnestrategi.
  • De mest succesrige virksomheder har ikke alene indført understøttende praksis, de har også en ledelse, der bakker op herom.
  • Uddannelse er et vigtigt element i opnåelsen af positive resultater på arbejdspladsen. De fleste arbejdspladser i EU tilbyder et minimum af uddannelse til i det mindste nogle medarbejdere, men kun nogle få tilbyder omfattende uddannelses- og læringsmuligheder.
  • Virksomheder med en stærk social dialog på arbejdspladsen scorer bedre med hensyn til resultater og trivsel. Arbejdspladser med en social dialog med inddragelse, tillid og indflydelse har også større sandsynlighed for regelmæssig direkte medarbejderdeltagelse, der gør en forskel i praksis.

Denne rapport er baseret på fjerde udgave af den europæiske virksomhedsundersøgelse, som blev udarbejdet i fællesskab af Eurofound og Cedefop i 2019. Den beskriver en bred vifte af praksisser og strategier, som europæiske virksomheder har gennemført med hensyn til arbejdstilrettelæggelse, forvaltning af menneskelige ressourcer, brug og udvikling af færdigheder og medarbejdernes medindflydelse. Rapporten viser, hvordan denne praksis kombineres, og hvordan de deraf følgende "praksispakker" er knyttet til to resultater, der er til gavn for arbejdstagere og arbejdsgivere: arbejdspladstrivsel og arbejdsstedets resultater.

Det konkluderes i analysen, at de arbejdssteder, der har størst sandsynlighed for at skabe et sådant positivt resultat på alle fronter, er dem der kombinerer en høj grad af selvstændighed på jobbet, en afbalanceret motivationsstrategi, en omfattende uddannelses- og læringsstrategi og en høj grad af direkte medarbejderindflydelse i beslutningsprocessen, samt yder ledelsesmæssig støtte til denne praksis. For at fremme vedtagelsen af medarbejderorienteret praksis — navnlig med hensyn til selvstændighed på jobbet, færdigheder og medarbejderindflydelse — bør ledere tilbydes passende støtte, da de spiller en central rolle i beslutningen om at iværksætte ændringer på arbejdspladsen. De er også afgørende for deres succes, da de løbende skal støtte den gennemførte praksis på arbejdspladsen.

    Customised reports

    To show appreciation for the time the ECS 2019 management respondents invested in filling out the questionnaire, Eurofound and Cedefop offered to generate a customised report for their establishment.

    The reports are generated automatically, and compare the establishment with other establishments in the same country, size category and sector. They include information on market characteristics, product market strategy, innovation, establishment performance, workplace relations, and human resources challenges.

    Over 13,000 respondents requested to receive such a customised report. Upon finalisation of the dataset the at the end of 2019, the reports were generated, and they were distributed to respondents in the beginning of 2020.

This report presents the results of research conducted largely prior to the outbreak of COVID-19 in Europe in February 2020. For this reason, the results do not fully take account of the outbreak.

Forskning udført forud for Det Forenede Kongeriges udtræden af Den Europæiske Union den 31. januar 2020 og offentliggjort efterfølgende kan omfatte data vedrørende de 28 EU-medlemsstater. Efter denne dato tager forskningen kun højde for de 27 EU-medlemsstater (EU-28 minus Det Forenede Kongerige), medmindre andet anføres.

Part of the series

  • European Company Survey 2019

    Eurofound’s European Company Survey (ECS) maps and analyses company policies and practices which can have an impact on smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, as well as the development of social dialogue in companies. This series consists of outputs from the ECS 2019, the fourth edition of the survey. The survey was first carried out in 2004–2005 as the European Survey on Working Time and Work-Life Balance. 

  • European Company Surveys

    The European Company Survey (ECS) is carried out every four to five years since its inception in 2004–2005, with the latest edition in 2019. The survey is designed to provide information on workplace practices to develop and evaluate socioeconomic policy in the EU. It covers issues around work organisation, working time arrangements and work–life balance, flexibility, workplace innovation, employee involvement, human resource management, social dialogue, and most recently also skills use, skills strategies and digitalisation.
