Abstract

Using data from the sixth European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS), carried out in 2015, the ERM report 2018 examines how workplace factors may influence the relationship between restructuring (with job losses) and the outcomes for employees. It also reviews policy and academic research on good practice in restructuring. The findings are then distilled into a model that may contribute to the design and implementation of effective measures to support the stayers. The good practice elements are exemplified by company case studies from four countries – Bulgaria, Germany, the Netherlands and Spain – showing different approaches.

    ERM report 2018: Impact of restructuring on working conditions - Executive summary

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Restructuring is a major feature of labour markets and work organisation. Data collected by Eurofound’s European Restructuring Monitor (ERM) clearly show this. While organisational restructuring is necessary for business survival and growth, it can take a heavy toll on employees – not least the ‘stayers’ or ‘survivors’ who manage to keep their jobs.
