Title: Extended and unusual working hours in European companies
Abstract
This report analyses the data from the Establishment Survey on Working Time 2004?2005 to address the issue of extended and unusual working hours, by exploring all aspects of what may be called ?non-standard working hours?: the extension of working hours through overtime, working at ?unusual? times beyond traditional societal standards (such as the ?9 to 5? norm), and varying time schedules over the week, month or year involving ?changing? working hours. It examines in greater detail the incidence and effects of such working hours across countries, sectors and companies.[Author vide Copyright]

Title: Trends and drivers of change in the food and beverage industry in Europe: Mapping report
Abstract
Increased competition, food scares and new consumer trends are among the key challenges facing the food and beverage industry in Europe. While these challenges pose a threat to some companies they can be an expansion opportunity for others. In response to these new challenges, food companies are improving competitiveness by restructuring, and intensifying the fight for market share through product differentiation and/or the development of new food products. This mapping report is part of a study of the food industry that also features four case studies, two cluster studies and four scenarios. It gives a concise overview of the food industry and identifies the main trends and key drivers of change.[Author vide Copyright]
