Samenvatting

This report analyses European corporate practices in terms of working time flexibility as revealed by the European Company Survey 2009 (ECS 2009). Flexibility in working time is a central aspect of ongoing debates regarding boosting employment in the EU. Enabling employees to better balance their working time and domestic reponsibilities is seen as a key way of encouraging more citizens to enter and remain in the workforce. At the same time, greater working time flexibility on the part of companies – and hence, employees – can enable European enterprises to be more responsive to market demands, so boosting the Union’s competitiveness. An executive summary is available (see Related content).

    Europese bedrijvenenquête 2009: Flexibiliteitsprofielen van Europese bedrijven - Samenvatting

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    De flexibiliteitsmethoden van Europese bedrijven vormden het onderwerp van de Europese bedrijvenenquête die Eurofound in 2009 heeft uitgevoerd. De enquête werd uitgevoerd onder managers en, voor zover mogelijk, werknemersvertegenwoordigers van 27.000 bedrijven, om na te gaan welke flexibiliteitsmaatregelen er beschikbaar waren en hoe deze werden gebruikt. Uit de resultaten komt naar voren dat arbeidstijdenflexibiliteit de meest gebruikelijke vorm van flexibiliteit is in bedrijven in de EU-lidstaten, Kroatië, de voormalige Joegoslavische Republiek Macedonië en Turkije.
