Résumé

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.

    Dialogue social, aménagements du temps de travail et équilibre vie-travail dans les entreprises européennes - Note de synthèse

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    L’enquête ESWT a été réalisée dans 21 pays européens: les quinze «anciens» États membres de l’Union européenne et les six nouveaux États membres (République tchèque, Chypre, Hongrie, Lettonie, Pologne et Slovénie). Dans plus de 21 000 entreprises, aussi bien privées que publiques, des responsables du personnel et, le cas échéant, des représentants des salariés ont été interrogés sur les aménagements du temps de travail et l’équilibre vie-travail sur le lieu de travail. Les résultats de l’enquête offrent un aperçu unique des diverses formes de dialogue social, d’aménagements du temps de travail et de mesures destinées à favoriser l’équilibre vie-travail et actuellement en place au sein des entreprises européennes.
