Abstract: In order to map and analyse changes in work, data emerging from organisation surveys can be applied as a useful source. This article provides a comparative overview of 12 major organisation surveys in European countries and at the European level that monitor changes in work. It is a methodological comparison as the overview is focused on survey design. The criteria discussed are (1) description of the population; (2) definition of research units; (3) sampling plan and sampling; (4) choice of respondents; (5) questioning method and response and (6) continuity of the survey efforts. Recommendations are made to improve the quality of organization surveys and to foster their convergence in order to enhance the comparability of survey results and deepen our understanding of changes in work across Europe.
