Workplace innovation (WPI) refers to practices that enable employees to participate in organisational change in such a way as to improve the quality of their working life and organisational performance. This report examines the motives behind the adoption of WPI and describes its implementation across companies in Europe. It analyses the impacts of WPI from the perspective of the different players – organisation, management, employees and employee representatives – in 51 companies across 10 EU Member States. The analysis reveals that while there is significant variation in the types of WPI practices in companies, the process of why and how these practices are implemented shows considerable similarity. While the reasons for introducing WPI are mainly related to enhancing efficiency, competitiveness and innovation, one positive result seems to be to strengthen the position of employees and employee representatives. As a result, WPI outcomes often lead to both enhanced economic performance and a better quality of working life for all concerned.

    Innovation sur le lieu de travail dans les entreprises européennes

    Auteur(s): 
    Eurofound

    L’innovation sur le lieu de travail (ILT) se réfère aux pratiques qui permettent aux salariés de participer aux changements organisationnels de manière à améliorer la qualité de leur vie professionnelle et les performances organisationnelles. Ce rapport examine les motifs sous-tendant l’adoption de l’ILT et décrit sa mise en œuvre dans les entreprises en Europe. Il analyse les incidences de l’ILT selon la perspective des différents acteurs (organisation, direction, salariés et représentants des salariés) dans 51 entreprises situées dans dix États membres de l’UE. D’après l’analyse, les types de pratiques d’ILT varient considérablement dans les entreprises, mais les raisons et les modalités de leur mise en œuvre obéissent à des processus très similaires. L’introduction de l’ILT répond principalement à la volonté d’améliorer l’efficacité, la compétitivité et l’innovation, mais semble entraîner un autre résultat positif: le renforcement de la position des salariés et des représentants des salariés. En conséquence, l’ILT permet souvent d’atteindre à la fois des performances économiques accrues et une meilleure qualité de vie professionnelle pour toutes les personnes concernées.
