How the organisation of work in and between companies affects and collaborates with conditions relating to the working environment, HSE, working hours, innovation and efficiency.
In 2015 we researched into:
- The traditional divide between manual and non-manual labour still describes highly relevant differences in employees’ autonomy in modern working life, but in addition we find an important dividing line between those who must work closely with employees in other companies or not.
- Large workshop companies must offer working hours arrangements with long free periods in order to attract the best qualified workforce (commuters). The use of a 14/21 scheme (two weeks on, three weeks off) is desired by many and our findings show that this scheme can work well for both commuters and residents if it is something that is chosen voluntarily.
