Innovation is an important driver of improved competitiveness, productivity and growth potential. This report explores which workplace practices have the strongest links to innovative company behaviour, looking at innovation in the form of new or significantly changed products or processes, new or improved marketing methods, and organisational change. It also explores links between innovation and company performance and workplace well-being, and examines the role of social dialogue in enhancing performance, well-being and innovation. The use of monitoring instruments for internal quality and external developments turned out to be among the strongest determinants of overall innovation; the degree of workers’ autonomy was another important factor. The probability of innovation is boosted when strong work organisation structures are combined with direct employee participation – for instance, involvement in solving problems or improving the quality of production.

    Innovative ændringer i europæiske virksomheder

    Forfatter(e): 
    Eurofound

    Innovation anses i sine forskellige former for at være en vigtig drivkraft for forbedret konkurrenceevne, produktivitet og virksomhedernes vækstpotentiale. Ved at være innovative både i deres produkter og i deres praksis og processer på arbejdspladsen vil de europæiske arbejdspladser være bedre rustet til at konkurrere internationalt.

    Denne rapport gør kritisk op med gængse forestillinger om innovation og undersøger forbindelserne mellem innovation, praksis, resultater og trivsel på arbejdspladsen i EU-28. Den undersøger især sammenhænge mellem virksomhedernes adfærd og gennemførelsen af pakker af arbejdspladspraksisser. Rapporten omhandler ligeledes den sociale dialogs rolle i udmøntningen af innovative arbejdspladspraksisser i bedre resultater og større trivsel.
