Description:

As part of EU regulations ONS produces, once every four years, a survey of labour costs called the European Labour Cost Survey (ELCS). Estimates are produced by combining information from existing sources, rather than running a dedicated survey as the cost and burden on businesses is deemed prohibitive. The purpose of the survey is to provide information about the non-wage elements of the costs of employing labour. This component of labour costs in not readily available from other sources, and is particularly important both as a macro-economic variable, and to employers in their assessment of overall costs. Labour costs include wages and salaries, pension and insurance contributions, benefits in kind, vocational training costs, services to employees, government subsidies, cost of recruiting staff, voluntary social welfare, and net running cost of company cars. The survey also covers the average number of employees and the total hours worked and whether they are paid for.
