Section II: Object
Provision of qualitative research study on organisational-level interventions reducing the negative effects of restructuring on employees in large company establishments in the EU.
The work to be undertaken under this contract will form part of a broader research project and the key findings will feed into the thematic section of the 2017 ERM annual report prepared by Eurofound.
The general objective of this contract is three-fold:
1) to provide a better understanding of the implementation of organisational-level interventions introduced in company establishments to offset the negative effects of restructuring on the remaining workforce;
2) to assist practitioners in the implementation of effective organisational interventions during restructuring;
3) to raise awareness among policymakers of the importance of organisational interventions investing in the remaining human capital for healthier restructuring and inform policy developments in the area.
The tasks are to be performed at the premises designated by the contractor and agreed by Eurofound. A kick-off meeting with Eurofound will be held at Eurofound's premises in Dublin (Ireland).
The work will ultimately consist in developing ‘good practice’ quality criteria and practical guidelines for the implementation of effective organisational interventions in restructured workplaces with a view to minimising the negative effects of restructuring for the remaining employees and fostering a positive and productive work environment. This will draw from different sources of information, including a review of the literature (task A), in-depth qualitative expert interviews (task B) and analyses and assessment of company case examples (task C). In this last stage of the contract the contractor is expected to conduct a comparative overview on the elaborated case examples and draw key lessons for both a practitioner and policy-making audience (task D).
— final interim report (approximately 10 pages or 4 000 words),
— final case example reports (5) of approximately 10–15 pages or 4 000–6 000 words per case example,
— final comparative overview of approximately 25 pages or 10 000 words.
