The quality of the working lives of European citizens is strongly dependent upon the forms of work organisation within which they operate. This report examines the four main types of work organisation that exist in Europe, outlines the characteristics that distinguish them, and looks at their prevalence in terms of sector, occupation, company size and from a cross country perspective.

    Working conditions in the European Union: Work organisation - Executive summary

    Author(s): 
    Eurofound

    Following the 2005 survey, Eurofound carried out further in-depth analyses of its findings on key themes relating to working conditions in the EU. The results of the EWCS have been analysed to map differences in the main forms of work organisation across EU countries, examining structural, demographic and cross-country characteristics that help define the different forms and exploring the relationship between work organisation and the various dimensions of quality of work and employment. The study includes an analysis of the links between work organisation and human resource management (HRM) practices, along with an examination of work organisation in small establishments and in ‘nonmarket’ sectors – such as public administration and social security, education, health and social work institutions. A report is available.
