Samenvatting

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.

    Sociale dialoog, arbeidstijdenregelingen en evenwicht tussen werk en privéleven in Europese bedrijven - Samenvatting

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Het onderzoek (ESWT) werd in 21 Europese landen uitgevoerd: de 15 oude lidstaten van de Europese Unie en zes van de nieuwe lidstaten – Tsjechië, Cyprus, Hongarije, Letland, Polen en Slovenië. In meer dan 21 000 ondernemingen in de private en publieke sector werden personeelsmanagers en vertegenwoordigers van werknemers – indien beschikbaar – geïnterviewd over arbeidstijdenregelingen en het evenwicht tussen werk en privéleven in hun organisatie. De bevindingen bieden een uniek inzicht in de diverse vormen van sociale dialoog, arbeidstijdenregelingen en de maatregelen ten behoeve van een beter evenwicht tussen werk en privéleven die tegenwoordig van kracht zijn in bedrijven in heel Europa.
