The European Company Survey – First Findings (Résumé)
In spring 2009, Eurofound launched a large-scale representative survey addressed to managers and employee representatives. The European Company Survey 2009 – Flexibility practices and social dialogue (ECS) is the second European-wide establishment survey launched by Eurofound. The European Company Survey documents flexibility strategies of firms and it is a unique source of comparative information on social dialogue at the workplace. Previous research at Eurofound has shown that companies use different flexibility practices not in isolation but in combination. The survey studied different measures of internal and external quantitative and qualitative flexibility.
