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

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.

The second stage of the project is set for April – September 2021, culminating with the Future of Work 2021 Conference in late 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 workstreams: 1) Access to social protection, 2) Workers’ representation, 3) Algorithmic transparency and 4) Re-skilling, Up-skilling and Micro-credentials.
