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.

    Cambios innovadores en las empresas europeas

    Autor o autores: 
    Eurofound

    La innovación en sus diversas formas se considera un motor importante de mejora de la competitividad, la productividad y el potencial de crecimiento de las empresas. Mediante la innovación aplicada tanto a sus productos como a sus procesos, las empresas europeas tienen mayores probabilidades de éxito en el ámbito internacional.

    Desde un punto de vista crítico, este informe analiza conceptos comunes de innovación y explora los vínculos entre la innovación, las prácticas, el rendimiento y el bienestar en el lugar de trabajo en la EU-28. En concreto, analiza las relaciones existentes entre la conducta de empresas innovadoras y la aplicación de paquetes de prácticas en el lugar de trabajo. El informe también estudia el papel del diálogo social en la traducción de prácticas innovadoras en el lugar de trabajo en niveles de rendimiento y bienestar más elevados.
