Eurociett invited to speak at CEPS conference on NEUjobs

 

Eurociett Managing Director Denis Pennel took part as a discussant in CEPS conference on NEUjobs on February 18th. He gave a presentation on the new reality of work.

Held in Brussels, the CEPS conference gathered more than 100 participants and addressed the issue of the future of European labour markets, under the NEUjobs umbrella. NEUjobs is a research project financed by the European Commission, whose objective is to analyse future possible developments of the European labour market(s) under the main assumption that European societies are now facing or preparing to face four main transitions that will have a major impact on employment, in particular for some groups in the labour force or sectors of the economy.

 

Denis Pennel was invited to play an active role in the session on "The future of labour: A brave new world vs Dickens". He presented the main trends affecting the changing world of work, which can be characterised by a destandardisation of the employment relationship, an individualisation of working conditions and a growing role for labour market intermediation.

EU Commissioner Laszlo Andor closed the conference in an open debate on what kind of change is ahead for EU citizens during the socio-ecological transitions.
