This brochure summarises the results of a survey carried out among 86 clothing companies representing eight different West European countries. The research examined the effect of new ways of work in clothing companies on personnel policy, on the organisation of work and on the effectiveness of the companies. This research is of interest to company managers, trade unionists, trainers and personnel who are responsible for organising work in clothing companies. Teamwork, decentralisation and job rotation are examples of such new production concepts.
