Title: Negotiating collective agreements on employment and competitiveness
Abstract
This report describes and analyses agreements between the social partners on employment and competitiveness in 11 Member States of the European Union. It focuses on innovative collective agreements concluded at both sectoral and company levels which are used by the parties involved (sometimes with state backing) to ensure that aspects of employment and competitiveness play a central role in any settlement reached. These agreements have become known as PECs: pacts for employment and competitiveness. In terms of their content, they cover a wide range of mostly interlinked measures, which include more flexible wage structures, the reduction of working time and changes in work organisation, as well as measures associated with continuing vocational training.

Title: Stylised features of price setting behaviour in Portugal
Title (other): 1992 - 2001
Abstract
This paper identifies the empirical stylized features of price setting behaviour in Portugal using the micro-datasets underlying the consumer and the producer price indexes. The main conclusions are the following: 1 in every 4 prices change each month; there is a considerable degree of heterogeneity in price setting practices; consumer prices of goods change more often than consumer prices of services; producer prices of consumption goods vary more often than producer prices of intermediate goods; for comparable commodities, consumer prices change more often than producer prices; price reductions are common, as they account for around 40 per cent of total price changes; price changes are, in general, sizeable; finally, the price setting patterns at the consumer level seem to depend on the level of inflation as well as on the type of outlet.

Title: Growth of enterprises through alliances in Central Europe
Abstract
The paper explores the role of alliances in Central European countries from the perspective of growth of enterprises. The analysis is based on a comparative overview of 26 case studies of enterprises in Poland, the Czech Republic and Hungary which have alliances with foreign partners. Most of the alliances are production alliances, especially subcontracting, that are combined with several other types of alliances, especially marketing agreements. The balance between generic expansion, alliances (networks), and mergers & acquisitions as modes of growth of enterprises reflects differences in the firms' ability to control technology, access to market and finance. However, the final outcome does not seem to be a direct function of the ability of enterprises to control these three factors. The types and dynamics of alliances also reflect the political and legal situation of a country (privatisation, attitude towards FDI) as well as specific sectoral features in terms of technology, finance and markets. Features of alliances are in that context shaped through the interaction between firm-specific factors and capabilities, sector- and country-specific factors. [Urheber s. Copyright]

Title: Creative destruction and transition: The effects of firm entry and exit on productivity growth in Estonia
Abstract
This paper presents one of the first studies of firm demographics in Estonia, focusing particularly on the processes of firm entry and exit as well as survival analysis of new firms. Also, decompositions of productivity change into components consisting of resource reallocation, firm entry and exit, and productivity growth within continuing firms are carried out. The results, derived from a novel database of Estonian firms, show that firm turnover has been rather high in Estonia during the observed period from 1995 to 2001, resulting from low institutional entry barriers and the emergence of the SME sector. The high survival rates for new firms and the surviving firms' relatively fast growth could reflect their relatively high productivity compared to incumbent firms and changes in the sectoral structure of the economy. The decomposition of productivity change shows that the high productivity growth has been mostly from intra-firm productivity growth (e.g. the adoption of new production technologies and organisational changes), but the reallocation of production factors (especially the exit of low productivity units) has played an important role as well.

Title: The pricing behaviour of Italian firms
Title (other): new survey evidence on price stickiness
Abstract
This study examines price setting behaviour of Italian firms on the basis of the results of a survey conducted by Banca d'Italia in early 2003 on a sample of around 350 firms belonging to all economic sectors. Prices are mostly fixed following standard mark-up rules, although customer-specific characteristics have a role, in particular in manufacturing and services where price discrimination across customers matters. Rival prices mostly affect pricesetting strategies in industrial firms. In reviewing their prices, firms follow either state-dependent rules or a combination of time and state-dependent ones. Concerning the frequency of price adjustments, a considerable degree of stickiness emerges both at the stage in which firms evaluate their pricing strategies and the stage in which they actually implement the price change. In 2002 most firms changed their price only once. Three alternative explanations of nominal rigidity are ranked highest by the firms interviewed: explicit contracts, tacit collusive behaviour and the perception of the temporary nature of the shock. Prices respond asymmetrically to shocks, depending on the direction of the adjustment (positive vs negative) and the source of the shock (demand vs supply). Real rigidities - captured by the degree of market competition, customers' search costs, the sensitivity of profits to changes in demand - play an important role in determining this asymmetry. Moreover, whereas cost shocks impact more when prices have to be raised than when they have to be reduced, demand decreases are more likely to induce a price change than demand increases.

Title: Evolving Structural Patterns in the Enlarging European Division of Labour: Sectoral and Branch Specialisation and the
Potentials for Closing the Productivity Gap
Abstract
The report summarises the results generated in empirical analysis within a larger EU's 5th framework programme for research and development on the determinants of productivity gaps between the current EU-15 and accession states in central and eastern Europe. The focus of research in this part of the project is on sectoral specialization patterns emerging as a result of intensifying integration between the current EU and a selection of six newly acceding economies, namely Estonia, Poland, the Czech and Slovak Republics, Hungary and Slovenia. The report is concerned with the role played by the respective specialisation patterns for the explanation of observed productivity gaps and for the projection of future potentials of productivity growth in central and eastern Europe. For the aggregated level, analysis determines the share of national productivity gaps accountable to acceding countries' particular sectoral patterns, and their role for aggregate productivity growth: in Poland, Slovakia and Hungary, sectoral shares of national productivity gaps are considerable and might evolve into a barrier to productivity catch-up. Moreover, past productivity growth was dominated by a downward adjustment in employment rather than structural change. With the industrial sector of manufacturing having been identified as the main source of national productivity gaps and growth, the subsequent analysis focuses on the role of industrial specialisation patterns and develops an empirical model to project future productivity growth potentials.

Title: The impact of EU enlargement
Abstract
Most multinational investors in Central and Eastern Europe acknowledge that EU expansion will affect their business, but very few have made any budget provision to cover the cost of enlargement. In addition, most companies are only now starting to prepare for the changes that EU enlargement will bring. These are some of the findings of a pan-European survey commissioned by PricewaterhouseCoopers to determine to what extent, if any, companies are preparing for EU enlargement on May 1, 2004. The survey covered 100 of the major investors in Central and Eastern Europe and was conducted across a range of industry sectors. The majority of respondents (89%) confirmed that EU enlargement will affect their business and they need to prepare for the changes. However, two-thirds of the companies that responded to the survey have only started or will only start considering the effects of enlargement and preparing for them this year. 86% of the companies have provided no budget to manage preparation for enlargement. Only 7% of companies have put aside 50,000 euros or more. A regional approach is being adopted by the majority of companies (68%) in preparing for EU enlargement. This reflects not only the cost-effectiveness of preparing on a regional basis but also that the likeliest areas for restructuring are in logistics and distribution. With the removal of internal customs borders, companies can much more easily implement regional or pan-European warehousing systems, as happened with the introduction of the single market in the EU after 1993. Almost 20% of the respondents thought that their company structure would change because of accession, with half of those believing middle management will become more centralised, while 25% of say they foresee greater decentralisation. The greatest perceived changes will be in taxation, particularly indirect tax, and in accounting and reporting systems. This is reflected in the job functions of those responsible for preparing for accession, with 61% of the respondents being either

Title: Support measures for business creation following restructuring
Abstract
Company restructuring has become a constant feature of the economic landscape of the European Union, driven by market changes, increased competition and globalisation. One way of minimising the negative social effects of restructuring is to encourage people affected by restructuring to set up their own business. This report examines the critical elements that positively and negatively affect business creation and entrepreneurship following company restructuring in Europe. It looks at different strategies developed by public and private actors to foster business creation. It presents case studies from six countries of successful examples of company restructuring, outlining in detail the experiences of business creation and development following the restructuring process.

Title: Key themes in global industrial relations: Minimum wages and relocation of production
Abstract
With economic globalisation growing ever deeper and international competition intensifying, it is increasingly clear that Europe's industrial relations systems do not exist in isolation, and cannot be studied as such. This report examines two topical issues - minimum wages and the crossborder relocation of production - from the perspective of industrial relations. Drawing on comparative analysis from the European Industrial Relation Observatory (EIRO), it looks at the situation in the 25 EU Member States, in two 'developed' countries - Japan and the USA - and two 'developing' countries - Brazil and China.

Title: Working time options over the life course: New work patterns and company strategies
Abstract
Profound socio-economic, demographic and cultural changes currently under way in Europe are modifying the way in which people organise their time and income over the life course. The ageing population, globalisation, the transition from a standard working organisation model to more diversified and individualised structures and changes in the gender division of labour - these are all shifting the boundaries between people's work and personal lives. At the same time, changes in the timing of entry into and exit from the labour market have considerably reduced the time devoted to paid work. [Dominique Anxo]

Title: Working time and work-life balance in European companies
Abstract
The Foundation's Establishment Survey on Working Time and Work-Life Balance 2004-2005 set out to map the use of a variety of working time arrangements in companies, to assess the reasons for their introduction and their impact. This report presents an overview of the survey's initial findings. It focuses on aspects such as flexible time arrangements in general, overtime, part-time work, nonstandard working hours, childcare leave and other forms of long-term leave, phased and early retirement and company policies to support work-life balance.

Title: Financial participation in the EU: a benchmarking study of Slovenia
Abstract
This report has two primary purposes. It aims to 'road test' the Foundation's financial participation indicators by applying them to a real life case, and to consider options for dealing with the lack of complete data. Slovenia was chosen as the pilot study. As much less has been written about financial participation in the new Member States (NMS) than in the former EU15, focusing on Slovenia provides an opportunity to widen the debate. [John McCartney]

Title: Quality in industrial relations: Comparative indicators
Abstract
This report explores the concept of quality in industrial relations, set against the background of EU policies and industrial relations theories. The primary aim was to draw up a conceptual framework for comparative indicators, which could serve to assess various aspects of industrial relations in terms of quality. The report aims to contribute to the debate between the social partners (and governments) on the development of quality in industrial relations and how to manage change. [Author vide Copyright]
