An Empirical Study with Employees Facing Job Loss in Five European Countries
This volume assembles the background and results of the major part of the empirical research performed in the frame of the SOCOSE project ? interviews with employees who are affected by changing work environments (?insecure jobs?) or who had previously lost their jobs and have found new employment through the help of outplacement/replacement counselling (?successfully reemployed?). 250 employees in five European countries were questioned with regard to their experiences and their future job prospects.
For each country, we will present cases where social actors joined in an innovative way in order to cope with redundancy, where specific strategies were developed, e. g. targeting vulnerable groups, or where employers expressed their social responsibility towards dismissed employees in a way that could set an example.
