Abstract

Innovations in work organisation have the potential to optimise production processes in companies and improve employees’ overall experience of work. This report explores the links between innovations in work organisation – under the broader label of high performance work practices (HPWPs) – and the potential benefits for both employees and organisations. It draws on empirical evidence from case studies carried out in 13 Member States (Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, UK) of the European Union where workplace innovations have resulted in positive outcomes. An executive summary and annexes are available - see Related content.

A report on Work organisation and innovation in Ireland, based on 3 additional company cases, was published in 2013.

    Nuálaíocht agus eagrú na hoibre - Achoimre fheidhmeach

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Tá an fhéidearthacht ag nuálaíochtaí in eagrú na hoibre próisis táirgeachta i gcuideachtaí a bharrfheabhsú agus feabhas a chur ar eispéireas oibre trí chéile na bhfostaithe. Déantar iniúchadh sa tuarascáil seo ar na naisc idir nuálaíochtaí in eagrú na hoibre - cleachtais oibre ardfheidhmíochta (HPWPanna) – agus na tairbhí d’fhostaithe agus d’eagraíochtaí araon. Tá sé bunaithe ar anailís a rinneadh ar chás-staidéir a cuireadh i gcrích i 13 Bhallstát an Aontais Eorpaigh, ina raibh torthaí dearfacha mar thoradh ar nuálaíochtaí sa láthair oibre. Maidir le HPWPanna bunaithe ar chleachtais mar bhainistíocht bharainneach, obair bhuíne, cleachtais sholúbtha oibre, athdhearadh na láithreach oibre agus rannpháirtíocht fhostaithe is amhlaidh a méadaíodh táirgiúlacht na cuideachta, feabhsaíodh cáilíocht na seirbhíse agus laghdaíodh na costais oibriúcháin.
