  • Government lifts ban on public sector bonuses

    In 2009, when Latvia’s budget deficit became acute, the Saeima [1], the Government of the Republic of Latvia, capped the salaries and bonuses of public sector employees. Between 2009 and 2011, cuts in the public sector wage bill accounted for almost half of the money saved through deficit reduction measures. Salaries in the sector decreased by an average 30%. Virtually all forms of performance-related bonus were stopped. [1] http://www.saeima.lv/

  • Norway: Positive trends in working conditions and occupational health

    This report summarises the findings of ‘Faktaboken om arbeidsmiljø og helse 2011’ [Factbook on working and health 2011], which presents updated statistics on the Norwegian working environment and identifies trends in work-related health problems by gender, age and occupational and industry groups. The data, based on responses from a representative sample of more than 24,000 workers, show that Norwegian working conditions and occupational health continue to improve. Most people have favourable working conditions and are in good health, and nine out of ten respondents say they are satisfied with their jobs. However, there are still challenges in some sectors in order to ensure a safe and healthy working environment that promotes motivation, good health and work satisfaction for everyone.

  • Emotionally demanding work most subject to health risks

    In 2010, the Belgian Government provided funds to increase the target sample size of the population taking part in the European Working Conditions Surveys (EWCS [1]) from 1,000 to 4,000 respondents. A consortium of Belgian researchers was employed to compile a report based on the information collected. The increased number of respondents resulted in a more complete coverage of sectors and occupations and more reliable findings. The findings have been published in a report, Quality of work and employment in Belgium (in French, 1.26Mb PDF) [2].

    In June 2011, an online survey of employee benefits was carried out by the ING Insurance Company (in Czech) [1] and the Confederation of Industry of the Czech Republic (SP ČR [2]). The survey was first conducted in 2010 with a sample of 173 companies. A total of 112 companies took part in the survey in 2011. In both cases, the survey included companies from all regions, of all sizes and from all sectors. However, the majority of the respondent companies (55%) were from the manufacturing industry.
