The Foundation carried out a comprehensive survey on working time and work–life balance in more than 21 000 European workplaces between autumn 2004 and spring 2005. The countries surveyed included the 15 ‘old’ Member States of the European Union (EU15) and six of the new Member States: the Czech Republic, Cyprus, Latvia, Hungary, Poland and Slovenia. The survey included questions on a variety of topics: flexible working time arrangements and working time accounts, part-time work, overtime and non-standard working hours; parental and other long-term leave; phased and early retirement; as well as specific policies to support work-life balance.
