There is thus a greater diversity of working hours among employees in Britain than is the case in France. Finally, examining the profile of employees by occupation, it is apparent that Britain has a greater share of managers and professionals (28%, compared with 18%), whilst France has greater shares of associate professionals and craft workers. 3 are also apparent in official statistics (see Eurostat 2015e). The tables thus provide a brief initial insight into the populations of workplaces and employees on which our analyses are based.

However, the ‘laissez-faire’ approach has weakened to some extent, with a notable increase in the provision of individual rights and an increased emphasis on minimum standards (Dickens and Hall 2009). This has partly come as the result of the weakness of unions in large parts of the economy, particularly the private sector, but also partially represents the consequences of Britain’s seemingly reluctant membership of the EU. There is, however, little appetite among policymakers in Britain for regulation beyond the provision of minimum standards, and the ‘right to manage’ model remains dominant in employment relations.

Looking across our population, workplaces in France have an average (mean) size of 53 employees, compared with an average of 48 employees in Britain. At the median the figures are 25 and 21, respectively. Workplaces are thus slightly smaller, on average, in Britain. If we look across a variety of industry sectors, we find a striking picture of similarity. Workplaces in Britain and France have a similar average size whether they are operating in manufacturing (average: 61 employees in Britain versus 64 in France), construction (33 in both), wholesale and retail (40 versus 43), hotels and restaurants (29 in both), business services (51 versus 59), or community services (46 versus 43).
