Abstract

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.

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Rinneadh (ESWT) an suirbhé i 21 tír Eorpach: 15 iar-Bhallstát an Aontais Eorpaigh agus sé chinn de na Ballstáit nua – Poblacht na Seice, an Chipir, an Ungáir, an Laitvia, an Pholainn agus an tSlóivéin. In os cionn 21,000 bunaíocht sna hearnálacha príobháideacha agus poiblí araon, rinneadh agallamh ar bhainisteoirí pearsanra agus ionadaithe na bhfostaithe – nuair a bhí a leithéid ar fáil – I leith socruithe ama oibre agus cothromaíocht oibre-saoil san ionad oibre. Soláthraíonn na torthaí léargas uathúil ar na cineálacha difriúla comhphlé sóisialta, socruithe ama oibre agus bearta chun cothromaíocht oibre-saoil a spreagadh atá i bhfeidhm cheana féin i gcuideachtaí ar fud na hEorpa.
