Sažetak

Restructuring is part and parcel of the economic fabric in Europe, as companies must adapt to altered conditions in a bid to remain sustainable and competitive. Most of the policy focus so far, however, has been on restructuring in terms of the large firm. In light of the relative importance of the small and medium-sized company (SME) – constituting over 99% of European businesses and about 66% of private sector employment – policymakers at all levels need to understand the specific challenges facing the smaller firm in order to provide appropriate support for this backbone of the European economy. Based on information derived from 85 case studies across all EU Member States and other sources, the report outlines the features peculiar to SMEs in their anticipation and management of restructuring, explores the main drivers of change and analyses the factors influencing successful restructuring. It offers a wide-ranging, comparative view of how restructuring impacts on workers and the company itself and puts forward several policy pointers for future action. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    Restrukturiranje u MSP-ovima u Europi

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Restrukturiranje je neizostavan dio gospodarske strukture u Europi budući da se tvrtke moraju prilagoditi izmijenjenim uvjetima kako bi ostale održive i konkurentne. Većina politika je do sada bila usmjerena na restrukturiranje velikih tvrtki. Uzimajući u obzir relativnu važnost malih i srednjih poduzeća (MSP) – koja čine više od 99% europskog poduzetništva i oko 66% zaposlenosti u privatnom sektoru – donositelji politika na svim razinama moraju razumjeti određene izazove s kojima se suočuju male tvrtke kako bi pružili odgovarajuću potporu ovoj okosnici europskog gospodarstva. Na temelju podataka koji proizlaze iz 85 studija slučaja diljem država članica EU-a i ostalih izvora, izvješće navodi obilježja svojstvena MSP-ovima u njihovim predviđanjima i upravljanju procesom restrukturiranja, istražuje glavne pokretače promjena te analizira čimbenike koji utječu na uspješno restrukturiranje. Daje sveobuhvatan i komparativan uvid u način na koji restrukturiranje utječe na radnike i samu tvrtku te određuje nekoliko smjernica za budući razvoj politike.
