Sommario

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.

    Dialogo sociale, organizzazione dell'orario di lavoro ed equilibrio tra lavoro e vita privata nelle società europee - Sintesi

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    L’indagine (ESWT) è stata condotta in 21 paesi europei: nei primi 15 Stati membri dell’Unione europea e in sei dei nuovi Stati membri: Repubblica ceca, Cipro, Ungheria, Lettonia, Polonia e Slovenia. In oltre 21 000 strutture appartenenti sia al settore privato che al settore pubblico, sono stati intervistati, laddove disponibili, i responsabili del personale e i rappresentanti dei lavoratori in merito all’organizzazione dell’orario di lavoro e all’equilibrio tra lavoro e vita privata sul posto di lavoro. I risultati costituiscono uno spaccato esclusivo delle diverse forme di dialogo sociale, dell’organizzazione dei tempi di lavoro e delle misure per incoraggiare l’equilibrio tra lavoro e vita privata attualmente adottati dalle società di ogni parte d’Europa.
