Resumen

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.

    Diálogo social, acuerdos sobre horarios de trabajo y equilibrio entre el trabajo y la vida privada en las empresas europeas - Resumen ejecutivo

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    La encuesta (ESWT) se llevó a cabo en 21 países europeos: los antiguos 15 Estados miembros de la Unión Europea y seis de los nuevos (República Checa, Chipre, Hungría, Letonia, Polonia y Eslovenia). Se realizaron entrevistas a los jefes de personal y a los representantes de los trabajadores —en su caso— de más de 21.000 centros de trabajo de los sectores público y privado, acerca de los acuerdos sobre horarios de trabajo y el equilibrio entre el trabajo y la vida privada. Los resultados proporcionan una perspectiva única de las diversas formas de diálogo social, acuerdos sobre horarios de trabajo y medidas para fomentar la conciliación entre la vida laboral y la privada actualmente en vigor en empresas de toda Europa.
