The third wave of Eurofound’s European Company Survey was carried out in 2013. It surveyed management representatives in over 24,000 establishments; where available, employee representatives were also interviewed – in 6,800 of these establishments. The European Company Survey captured workplace practices in terms of work organisation, workplace innovation, human resource management, direct participation and social dialogue. After setting out the findings, this report then examines how these practices relate to each other and to the outcomes for companies and workers. Overall, the European Company Survey 2013 finds that establishments that used joint employee-management decision-making on daily tasks, have a moderately  structured internal organisation, make a limited investment in human resource management but have extensive practices for direct participation score best both in terms of company  performance and workplace well-being.

    Troisième enquête sur les entreprises en Europe – Les pratiques sur le lieu de travail: tendances, performances et bien-être

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    La troisième édition de l'enquête sur les entreprises en Europe d’Eurofound a été réalisée en 2013. Les enquêteurs ont interrogé des représentants de la direction de plus de 24 000 établissements. Lorsqu’ils étaient disponibles, les représentants des salariés ont également été interrogés – dans 6 800 de ces établissements. L’enquête a consigné les pratiques en usage sur les lieux de travail en termes d'organisation des tâches, de gestion des ressources humaines, de participation directe et de dialogue social. Après avoir exposé les conclusions, le présent rapport examine la manière dont ces pratiques interagissent entre elles et les résultats pour les entreprises et les travailleurs. Globalement, le rapport conclut que les établissements qui ont recours à la prise de décision conjointe entre les employés et la direction pour les tâches quotidiennes, possèdent une organisation interne modérément structurée, investissent de manière limitée dans la gestion des ressources humaines mais usent de pratiques de participation directe étendues obtiennent les meilleurs scores, à la fois en termes de performances de l’établissement et de bien-être sur le lieu de travail.
