Zusammenfassung

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.

    Sozialer Dialog, Arbeitszeitregelungen und Vereinbarkeit von Berufs- und Privatleben in europäischen Unternehmen - Zusammenfassung

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Die Erhebung (ESWT) wurde in 21 europäischen Ländern durchgeführt: den damals 15 Mitgliedstaaten der Europäischen Union und sechs der neuen Mitgliedstaaten (Tschechische Republik, Zypern, Ungarn, Lettland, Polen und Slowenien). In mehr als 21 000 Betrieben des privaten wie des öffentlichen Sektors wurden Personalleiter und – sofern verfügbar – Arbeitnehmervertreter zu Arbeitszeitregelungen sowie zur Vereinbarkeit von Berufs- und Privatleben auf Unternehmensebene befragt. Die Ergebnisse bieten einen einzigartigen Einblick in die verschiedenen Formen der gegenwärtig in Unternehmen in ganz Europa praktizierten Formen von sozialem Dialog, Arbeitszeitregelungen und Maßnahmen zur Förderung der Vereinbarkeit von Berufs- und Privatleben.
