Sumar

Working time policies, although designed within the national and sectoral framework and the boundaries of institutional regulations, are fine-tuned and implemented at the level of each company, taking account of the environment in which the company operates and the workforce it is employing. Hence, companies have placed more importance on working time organisation in recent years. In light of this, the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions launched in 2004 its first Establishment Survey on Working Time and Work–Life Balance (ESWT), covering a large array of working time arrangements such as flexible working hours, overtime, part-time work, work at unusual hours, childcare leave or other forms of long-term leave, and phased or early retirement. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    Dialogul social, măsurile privind programul de lucru şi echilibrul între viaţa profesională şi viaţa personală în întreprinderile europene - Sinteză

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Studiul (ESWT) a fost efectuat în 21 de state europene: primele 15 state membre ale Uniunii Europene şi şase din noile state membre – Republica Cehă, Cipru, Ungaria, Letonia, Polonia şi Slovenia. În peste 21 000 de întreprinderi atât din sectorul privat, cât şi din sectorul public, directorii de personal şi reprezentanţii angajaţilor – acolo unde aceştia sunt prezenţi – au fost intervievaţi cu privire la măsurile privind programul de lucru şi echilibrul între viaţa profesională şi viaţa personală la locul de muncă. Constatările oferă o imagine unică a diverselor forme de dialog social, a măsurilor privind programul de lucru şi a măsurilor pentru încurajarea echilibrului între viaţa profesională şi viaţa personală aplicate în prezent în întreprinderile din Europa.
