As for 2022, Reshaping Work wants to go beyond the policy discussions and provide practical guides for all the parties interested in advancing working conditions. By outlining action points, we hope to accelerate decent and fair future of work.
The European Commission’s proposal for a directive on improving the working conditions in platform work is leading the way in efforts to regulate this new form of work. While all the concerned parties welcome the directive, many have oppositive views on rebuttable presumption of the employment and its criteria.
To encourage evidence-based discussion and facilitate mutual understanding between various actors in the platform economy, Reshaping Work Dialogue initiative organized an interactive workshop exploring the impact of the platform work directive. This mini report summarizes the main discussion points, challenges, and possible solutions as seen by various stakeholders.
*This mini-report is the outcome of the workshop and not a comprehensive overview on the proposed directive. The views expressed in this mini-report are of the workshop participants.
Artificial intelligence is now applied across many jobs, sectors, and industries. AI-powered software is used by both traditional companies and digital labour platforms to automate a great variety of tasks.
Given the urgency for responsible and human-centric application of AI systems in the world of work, Reshaping Work partnered with the Ethical Data Science Association (EDSA) of Erasmus University Rotterdam to establish necessary steps in translating AI ethical principles into practice; thus, ensuring the democratisation of workplaces. Applying the AI Ethics Maturity Model developed by EDSA, this guide defines concrete actions that make it possible to advance data science ethics within an organisation.
*This guide is the outcome of the workshop and not a comprehensive guide on how to implement AI within organisations.
