Abstract

Structural change is a general characteristic of economic development, driven by shifts in relative productivity and demand, technological or socioeconomic changes. To adapt to a changing economic environment, companies undergo restructuring to maintain or improve their competitiveness and, hence, sustainability. While restructuring is essential to the dynamism of the European economy, it can entail difficulties for employees. The ERM annual report 2011 looks at the whole range of instruments available in the EU to mitigate the negative effects that it may have for both companies and employees and introduces around 400 of them in an online database. The ERM annual report also presents an overview and analysis of restructuring activities in Europe as captured by the European Restructuring Monitor (ERM).  See also the Restructuring support instruments database. An executive summary is available.

    The 2011 Report from the European Restructuring Monitor (ERM) launches a database on public and social partner-based support measures to anticipate and manage restructuring in the EU27 and Norway. While restructuring economic and human resources towards more productive and profitable activities is fundamental to the dynamism of the European economy, it can entail difficulties for employees. It is therefore essential that institutions and policies not only facilitate necessary structural change but also serve to mitigate the negative effects that the ensuing labour market adjustment may have for both companies and employees.
