Abstract

The 2013 annual report from the European Restructuring Monitor (ERM) presents a retrospective of over a decade of measuring the impact of large-scale restructuring activity in Europe. Based on a database containing details of over 16,000 large-scale restructuring events– each generally involving at least 100 job losses or gains – it paints a picture of restructuring trends across the EU Member States. The report sets out to compare activity in the period leading up to the economic and financial crisis (2003–2008) with the post-crisis period (2008–2013), in order to identify changes in restructuring practices and to pinpoint the sectors that have been disproportionately affected, in employment terms, by the global recession. Also included is a critical assessment of all ERM activities, including the two newer policy-oriented databases: public support instruments and restructuring legislation. Finally, the report places the spotlight on the phenomenon of offshoring, charting the decline in offshoring activity by European firms since the onset of the crisis. An executive summary is also available - see Related content.

    Relatório anual do EMR relativo a 2013: Monitorização e gestão da reestruturação no século XXI

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Este relatório anual do Observatório Europeu da Reestruturação (ERM) apresenta um panorama geral da atividade do ERM de mais uma década de medição do impacto da atividade de reestruturação em larga escala na Europa. Faz uma na análise das tendências em matéria de reestruturação nos Estados-Membros da UE fundada numa base de dados relativos a mais de 16 000 casos de reestruturação em larga escala – que envolveram geralmente pelo menos 100 perdas ou ganhos de postos de trabalho. O relatório compara a atividade no período anterior à crise (2003-2008) com o período pós crise (2008-2013), a fim de identificar mudanças nas práticas de reestruturação e de mostrar quais os setores que foram mais afetados, em termos de emprego, pela recessão global. Nos últimos capítulos, o relatório aborda o fenómeno da deslocalização – um dos oito tipos de reestruturação relacionados com casos que envolvem perdas substanciais de postos de trabalho quando a atividade é deslocalizada ou externalizada para fora das fronteiras do país – e acompanha o declínio da atividade de deslocalização por parte das empresas europeias desde o início da crise.
