Defining the high road of work organisation as a resource for policy makers and social partners

Objective

Expanding the approach already developed within the EWON paper "Building Organisational Competence", the project will identify the nature of the workplace level changes which characterise new forms of work organisation in Europe. Likewise the project will analyse a broad spectrum of practice at workplace level. Drawing on a carefully selected sample of some 200 existing case studies of innovative practice the research will produce a detailed analysis of new forms of work organisation identifying:
a) drivers for change;
b) characteristics of change;
c) benefits of change;
d) obstacles to change. The outcomes of the literature review and case study analysis will be appropriately packaged and made widely available to practitioners through the Internet.
