Abstract: The MEADOW Guidelines propose a measurement framework for collecting and interpreting internationally harmonised data on organisational change and its economic and social impacts for both private and public sector organisations. Reliable harmonised statistics on organisational change would provide the basis for effective benchmarking through the exchange of information on best practices across EU-member states and in this way could contribute directly to the success of European policy initiatives aimed at increasing the fl exibility and adaptability of organisations and employees while simultaneously improving the quality of jobs during economic booms as well as downturns. The MEADOW project (MEAsuring the Dynamics of Organisations and Work) is a European Commission funded Coordinating Action that brought together a multidisciplinary consortium of 14 partners from 9 European countries. The Meadow consortium has been actively supported by a number of key European and international institutions with central responsibilities for data collection and dissemination, including the OECD, EUROSTAT, the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions, the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work, and DG Employment. MEADOW has been funded by the European Commission under priority 7 (Citizens and Governance) of the 6th RTD Framework Program.
