Project description

The coordination action MEADOW aims at setting out guidelines for collecting and interpreting harmonised European data on organisational change and work restructuring and their economic and social impacts, constituting a first step towards implementing a harmonised European survey instrument.

The project integrates the perspectives of both producers and users by including research teams that have designed and implemented national survey instruments for measuring organisational change, innovation and work restructuring, as well as experienced users of such surveys. After a state of the art in surveys on organisational and work’s changes, and concepts of the organisational change, priorities in measurement and basic definitions are fixed; then the measure of organisational change in employee surveys, and in employers surveys, in different countries are analysed and different statistical methods identified; a harmonised questionnaire developing core indicators is finally tested and revised.
