The Bosch group, with headquarters in Stuttgart, is one of the world’s largest private industrial corporations and a major supplier in the field of automotive and industrial technology, as well as of consumer goods and building technology. This case study is based on interviews carried out in the Czech Republic and Hungary between March and June 2006 with EWC delegates, as well as with a senior HR management representative (Hungary) and a local works council chairman (Hungary). Additional information was delivered by the Bosch EWC Secretariat in Germany. The Bosch EWC was established in 1998.
