Innovation is an important driver of improved competitiveness, productivity and growth potential. This report explores which workplace practices have the strongest links to innovative company behaviour, looking at innovation in the form of new or significantly changed products or processes, new or improved marketing methods, and organisational change. It also explores links between innovation and company performance and workplace well-being, and examines the role of social dialogue in enhancing performance, well-being and innovation. The use of monitoring instruments for internal quality and external developments turned out to be among the strongest determinants of overall innovation; the degree of workers’ autonomy was another important factor. The probability of innovation is boosted when strong work organisation structures are combined with direct employee participation – for instance, involvement in solving problems or improving the quality of production.

    Inovativne promjene u europskim poduzećima

    Author(s): 
    Eurofound

    Inovacija se u svojim raznim oblicima smatra važnim pokretačem veće konkurentnosti, produktivnosti i potencijala za rast poduzeća. Uvođenjem inovacija u pogledu proizvoda te novih radnih praksi i procesa europskim se radnim mjestima pruža veća prilika da postanu konkurentnija na međunarodnoj razini.

    U ovom se izvješću kritički razmatra uobičajeno poimanje inovacija i proučavaju veze između inovacija, prakse, učinkovitosti i zadovoljstva na radnom mjestu u 28 država članica Europske unije. Nadalje, analiziraju se poveznice između inovativnih pristupa poduzeća i provedbe skupina radnih praksi. U izvješću se promatra i uloga socijalnog dijaloga u primjeni inovativnih radnih praksi u svrhu postizanja veće učinkovitosti i zadovoljstva.
