Eurofound is a tripartite European Union Agency, with who the Social Employers collaborates. Eurofound provides knowledge to assist in the development of better social, employment and work-related policies.
Lately, Eurofound has published the representativeness study of the European social partner organisations in social services and the report on Long-term care workforce: employment and working conditions.
The programming period 2021–2024 focuses on working conditions, industrial relations, employment and living conditions challenges in the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The main objective is to provide information to policymakers and other stakeholders, to overcome the health risks, set the grounds for an inclusive recovery, and address the challenges across the social, employment and work-related domains.
The Programming document 2021–2024 has six strategic areas:
- Working conditions and sustainable work
- Industrial relations and social dialogue
- Employment and labour markets
- Living conditions and quality of life
- Anticipating and managing the impact of change
- Promoting social cohesion and convergence
Eurofound’s work, such as on the improvement of the working conditions, the labour market, sustainable work and the promotion of industrial relations and social dialogue, are key to support the development of better informed policies, including for the social services sector.
