The Establishment Survey on Working Time and Work-Life Balance (ESWT) series, which began in 2004-2005, aims to map working time policies and practices at the level of the establishment in the European Union (EU), to survey the views of the different actors at establishment level on these policies and practices, and to provide policy makers with a picture of the main issues and developments in the field. The first survey was conducted in the 15 existing EU member states (EU15) and 6 of the new states who joined the EU in 2004: Cyprus, Czech Republic, Hungary, Latvia, Poland and Slovenia. The topics to be covered in detail were agreed between TNS Infratest Sozialforschung, who conducted the first survey on behalf of the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions (EFILWC), the research team and advisory committee at EFILWC, and a group of experts from various countries. It was agreed to focus on the following working time arrangements which are likely to have an impact on work-life balance: * part-time work * extended operating hours (night work, week-end work, shift work) * flexible working time arrangements (e.g. flexi-time, working time accounts) * overtime * childcare leave and other forms of long-term leave * phased retirement and early retirement For these working time arrangements, information about the incidence at establishment level was collected and (where it made sense and was possible within the given restrictions of the length of the questionnaire) information about the reasons for the introduction, the practical experiences and details of the regulations. The second ESWT survey is to be carried out in 2008, with results available in early 2009. Beyond that, it is planned that the survey will be repeated once every four years, depending on budget availability. Further information about the survey can be found on the EFILWC ESWT web pages (http://www.eurofound.europa.eu/areas/worklifebalance/eswt.htm).
