Résumé

The ERM Report 2012 focuses on the consequences of restructuring for employees. It examines which employees lost their job at the onset of the economic crisis, which of them found a new job and how both job loss and subsequent re-employment impacted on their overall life situation and satisfaction. It also looks at the impact on working conditions for employees who remain at the restructured firm. Both these studies, of those who lost their jobs and those who stayed at the restructured workplace, have never before been analysed by using common, EU-wide and representative, datasets. The report also provides an overview of recent restructuring using the ERM database. While restructuring cases reporting job loss have fallen since the peak of 2009, they still outnumber announcements of job gain. Several recent cases testify to serious problems in the once very promising alternative energy sector in Europe. The findings show that much of the recently announced job creation is in the hotels and retail sectors. An executive summary is available.

    Rapport 2012 de l'ERM – Après la restructuration: marchés de l'emploi, conditions de travail et satisfaction de la vie - Synthèse

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Le rapport 2012 de l'ERM s'attache aux conséquences des restructurations pour les salariés. Il examine quels sont les salariés qui ont perdu leur emploi au début de la crise économique, quels sont ceux qui ont en retrouvé un et quelles répercussions ont eu la perte d'emploi et le retour à l'emploi sur leur situation générale et leur satisfaction de la vie. Il étudie également les effets de la restructuration sur les conditions de travail des salariés restant dans l'entreprise restructurée. Ces deux groupes, ceux qui ont perdu leur emploi et ceux qui sont restés dans l'entreprise restructurée, n'avaient jamais jusqu'ici fait l'objet d'une analyse par des séries de données communes et représentatives à l'échelle de l'Union européenne. Le rapport présente également un aperçu des restructurations récentes en s'appuyant sur la base de données de l'ERM. Bien que les suppressions d'emplois déclarées à l'occasion des restructurations aient chuté par rapport au pic de 2009, elles restent plus nombreuses que les annonces de créations d'emplois. Plusieurs cas de restructuration récents témoignent des problèmes sérieux que rencontre le secteur des énergies alternatives en Europe, naguère si prometteur. Les résultats montrent qu'une large part des créations d'emplois annoncées récemment se concentre dans les secteurs de l'hôtellerie et du commerce de détail.
