The economic crisis has forced companies to make certain decisions - decisions which affect organisational operation, long-term strategy and corporate culture alike. It is not surprising, of course, that employment is an area most deeply affected by the crisis – in fact, to its very foundation - so foreshadowing new, flexible solutions and a reappraisal of atypical employment. Last year a comprehensive research programme was conducted which allowed people to learn more about atypical employment, whilst, at the same time, enabling empirical studies focusing on paradigms of new employment opportunities. In this way suggestions could be directed towards decision-makers encouraging the use of this tool to alleviate the current labour market situation. This study presents some of the results of this empirical research, and with special regard to the theoretical and practical approaches towards atypical employment from the perspective of state and private organisations. The research showed that, in the current economic climate, neither private nor public companied showed any willingness to adopt atypical forms of employment as flexible tools in their employment strategies or to incorporate such forms into their organisational culture.
