Launch of Reshaping Work Dialogue 2020

The initiative ran a first yearly cycle of multistakeholder discussions in August – December 2020. We onboarded 18 project partners and hosted 8 roundtable discussions as well as two workshops with the European Commission. The constructive, high quality discussions that unfolded among partners and the positive feedback from policy makers, confirmed that such multistakeholder discussions are paramount.

Dialogue 2020 involved three work streams: 1) Access to good quality work, 2) Social protection, rights and benefits, and 3) Skills and career development.

Report published: Navigating Diverse Forms of Work

The European economies and labour market are undergoing an unprecedented digital transformation that has accelerated the rise of diverse (non-standard, new) forms of work.

The report presents the outcome of twelve roundtable discussions facilitated by the Reshaping Work Dialogue, supported by a systematic literature review of the topic and knowledge of independent experts that partook in writing and reviewing this report.
