Foundation Focus sheds light on flexible working time arrangements

News   •   Jan 24, 2017 09:13 GMT

Between 2010 and 2015, as highlighted in the latest issue of Eurofound’s magazine Foundation Focus, there was an overall increase in the proportion of workers with some form of flexible working time and a decline in the extent of schedules with no possibility for change. In some countries, the proportion of workers with flexible arrangements has decreased (Bulgaria, Lithuania and Slovakia). In these countries, working time legislation continues to be rather rigid. The proportion of workers taking up flexible arrangements has increased most in western Europe, a consequence of the growth in dual-earner households and of companies’ needs for flexible production.
