This report studies practices in EU establishments for direct and indirect employee participation in decision-making. Indirect employee participation is the involvement of employee representatives in decision-making processes, while direct employee participation describes direct interaction between employers and employees. The study builds on the survey data from the Eurofound Third European Company Survey Overview report and focuses on how direct and indirect employee participation are related to each other and to national-level industrial relations characteristics. It establishes which practices of employee participation are beneficial both for the establishment and the employees. It finds that more extensive forms of direct and indirect employee participation are associated with positive establishment outcomes.

    Derde Europese bedrijvenenquête – Directe en indirecte werknemersparticipatie

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Dit verslag onderzoekt welke praktijken organisaties in de EU hanteren om werknemers direct en indirect in de besluitvorming te laten participeren. Indirecte werknemersparticipatie houdt in dat werknemersvertegenwoordigers betrokken worden bij het besluitvormingsproces, terwijl bij directe werknemersparticipatie sprake is van directe interactie tussen werkgevers en werknemers. Dit verslag is gebaseerd op de gegevens uit het overzichtsverslag van de derde Europese bedrijvenenquête van Eurofound en richt zich op het verband tussen directe en indirecte werknemersparticipatie en de kenmerken van arbeidsverhoudingen op nationaal niveau. In het verslag wordt vastgesteld welke praktijken op het gebied van werknemersparticipatie niet alleen voordeel opleveren voor de organisatie, maar ook voor de werknemers. Er wordt tevens vastgesteld dat meer vergaande vormen van directe en indirecte werknemersparticipatie verbonden kunnen worden met positieve resultaten van een organisatie.
