  • Work programme
    11 december 2013

    The focus of Eurofound’s 2014 work programme will be on providing knowledge that will help to address Europe’s employment and social crisis. In relation to employment, the Agency will continue to provide information on ongoing changes in the employment structure. To support policies aimed at combating unemployment, the focus will be on job creation in SMEs and on initiatives for young people. For those in employment, sustainable working conditions throughout working life, as well as company practices that improve both working conditions and company performance, will be central research interests. The social crisis experienced in many Member States is closely related to the tightening of public budgets. Public services will receive special attention, with research examining how access, quality and effectiveness are impacted by the crisis and aiming to identify where and how they have successfully adapted to the dual challenge of increased demand for services and declining resources. These questions will guide research on a number of specific services and on social benefits.

    11 december 2013

    This annual review describes the main developments in industrial relations
    and working conditions in 2012 in the former 27 EU Member States and in
    Croatia and Norway, at both national and EU level. The report first sketches
    the current economic situation in these 29 countries, pointing to relevant
    political and legislative developments in individual countries. It discusses
    trends in industrial relations, including changes in the role and
    organisation of the social partners and the impact of government measures and
    legislation. The report highlights policies and initiatives, legislative
    developments and collective bargaining landmarks in five areas – employment
    conditions, wages, health and safety, skills and competencies, and working
    time – from the dual perspective of working conditions and industrial
    relations developments.
