August 2020

Launch of Stage 1 of the Multistakeholder Dialogue project

The initiative ran a first stage 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 the project partners and the positive feedback from policy makers, confirmed that such multistakeholder discussions are paramount. 

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

Report published: Advancing the quality of work and working conditions in the EU

Diverse forms of employment are on the rise: temporary work, agency work, platform work, and other multiparty work relationships beyond full time, open ended contracts. The growing variety of workforce and workplace configurations promises opportunities for greater labour market participation, increased worker autonomy and dynamic career paths. This report is a direct outcome of the stage 1 discussions and serves as a first step towards an enduring effort to improve work and working conditions for workers across diverse forms of employment.

Launch of Stage 2 of the Multistakeholder Dialogue project.

The second stage of the project is set for April 2021 – January 2022, culminating with the Future of Work 2021 Conference in early September. By having a collective voice that encompasses a multitude of perspectives, we can inspire debate on the policy level and thereby ensure that the European economy moves in a direction beneficial to all concerned.

Stage 2 involves four work streams: 1) Access to social protection, 2) Workers’ representation, 3) Algorithmic transparency and 4) Re-skilling, Up-skilling and Micro-credentials.

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. While the labour market transformation has been underway for
decades, rapid technological advancements and, more recently, the COVID-19 pandemic, expedited the trend, compelling policy makers around the EU Member States to devise adequate responses.

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