Innovation is an important driver of improved competitiveness, productivity and growth potential. This report explores which workplace practices have the strongest links to innovative company behaviour, looking at innovation in the form of new or significantly changed products or processes, new or improved marketing methods, and organisational change. It also explores links between innovation and company performance and workplace well-being, and examines the role of social dialogue in enhancing performance, well-being and innovation. The use of monitoring instruments for internal quality and external developments turned out to be among the strongest determinants of overall innovation; the degree of workers’ autonomy was another important factor. The probability of innovation is boosted when strong work organisation structures are combined with direct employee participation – for instance, involvement in solving problems or improving the quality of production.

    Schimbări inovatoare în cadrul întreprinderilor europene

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Inovarea – în diferitele sale forme – este considerată un factor important de îmbunătățire a competitivității, a productivității și a potențialului de creștere al întreprinderilor. Datorită inovării, locurile de muncă din Europa și-ar putea spori șansele de a concura la nivel internațional, atât în materie de produse, cât și în materie de practici și procese la locul de muncă.

    Raportul de față analizează în mod critic conceptele comune referitoare la inovare și explorează legăturile dintre inovare, practici, performanță și bunăstare la locul de muncă în UE-28. În special, raportul examinează felul în care se îmbină conduita inovatoare a unei întreprinderi și punerea în aplicare a ansamblurilor de practici de la locul de muncă. Raportul studiază de asemenea rolul dialogului social în transpunerea practicilor inovatoare de la locul de muncă în performanță și bunăstare de nivel mai înalt.
