About this book

The book presents the descriptive findings and analytical results from the recent representative European Union Company survey of Operating hours, Working times and Employment (EUCOWE) in France, Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and the United Kingdom. The EUCOWE-project is the first representative and standardised European company survey which covers all categories of firm size and all sectors of the economy. Several relevant questions are addressed on the basis of the survey, such as: What are the operating hours of the different European countries that form the six country studies of this research? What are the differences between sectors of activities and establishment sizes? By means of what type of working-time organisation are those operating hours accomplished? What is the relationship between operating hours and employment? The book is the most comprehensive analysis on Operating Hours, Capacity Utilisation, Working Times and Employment in the European Union available.
