The third wave of Eurofound’s European Company Survey was carried out in 2013. It surveyed management representatives in over 24,000 establishments; where available, employee representatives were also interviewed – in 6,800 of these establishments. The European Company Survey captured workplace practices in terms of work organisation, workplace innovation, human resource management, direct participation and social dialogue. After setting out the findings, this report then examines how these practices relate to each other and to the outcomes for companies and workers. Overall, the European Company Survey 2013 finds that establishments that used joint employee-management decision-making on daily tasks, have a moderately  structured internal organisation, make a limited investment in human resource management but have extensive practices for direct participation score best both in terms of company  performance and workplace well-being.

L'indagine ha riguardato le prassi esistenti nei luoghi di lavoro in materia di organizzazione del lavoro, gestione delle risorse umane, partecipazione diretta e dialogo sociale. Questa relazione presenta innanzitutto i risultati emersi dall'indagine, quindi esamina le relazioni reciproche tra le varie prassi e tra le prassi e la situazione delle imprese e dei lavoratori. Nel complesso, indica che le sedi aziendali che utilizzano processi decisionali congiunti tra dirigenti e dipendenti riguardo alle mansioni di lavoro giornaliere, hanno un'organizzazione interna mediamente strutturata, effettuano investimenti limitati nella gestione delle risorse umane ma hanno prassi ben sviluppate per la partecipazione diretta ottengono i risultati migliori in termini di performance  e benessere nel luogo di lavoro.
