Resumé

Working time policies, although designed within the national and sectoral framework and the boundaries of institutional regulations, are fine-tuned and implemented at the level of each company, taking account of the environment in which the company operates and the workforce it is employing. Hence, companies have placed more importance on working time organisation in recent years. In light of this, the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions launched in 2004 its first Establishment Survey on Working Time and Work–Life Balance (ESWT), covering a large array of working time arrangements such as flexible working hours, overtime, part-time work, work at unusual hours, childcare leave or other forms of long-term leave, and phased or early retirement. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    Social dialog, arbejdstidsordninger og balancen mellem arbejde og fritid I europæiske virksomheder - Sammendrag

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Undersøgelsen (ESWT) blev gennemført i 21 europæiske lande, nemlig de 15 ”gamle” EU-medlemsstater og seks nye medlemsstater – Den Tjekkiske Republik, Cypern, Ungarn, Letland, Polen og Slovenien. I over 21 000 virksomheder i både den private og offentlige sektor blev personaleledere og arbejdstagerrepræsentanter – hvor sådanne fandtes – interviewet om arbejdstidsordningerne og balancen mellem arbejde og fritid på deres arbejdsplads. Resultaterne giver et enestående indblik I de forskellige former for social dialog, arbejdstidsordninger og måder til fremme af en bedre balance mellem arbejde og fritid, der i øjeblikket findes I virksomheder over hele Europa.
