Employees’ participation as a lever to employability: dimensions, approaches, impact and perspectives
Project co-financed by the EU Commission DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion.
Grant Agreement VS/2014/0052
The project was conceived and promoted by CGIL, the biggest Italian trade union confederation, along with Agenquadri, an affiliate, that is the professional and managerial staff union. The elaboration and implementation of the project took part, as a co-applicant, by five other unions: the Belgian trade union FGTB, the Hungarian trade union MSZOSZ, the Slovenian trade union ZSSS, the Spanish trade union Comisiones Obreras, Eurocadres, European union of professional and managerial staff.
Together, we focused on three specific objectives:
1. the exchange of experiences and models of worker participation, analyzing best practices and wrong ones.
2. Analyse the impact of participation, in all its forms, employability and organizational well-being (even with its implications on productivity).
3. Collect case studies, also linked to European Works Councils and highlighting the positive aspects and weaknesses of this approach.
