Eurofound together with the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) and Workage (an EU-funded project) held an interactive conference on the theme of sustainable work in the EESC premises in Brussels on 29 September.
The event brought together representatives from business, public policy, research and social partner organisations to explore new findings from Eurofound on sustainable work and from Workage’s research in the UK, while drawing on the EESC’s experience in the area. The event sought to explore the practical actions required to make work more sustainable throughout the life course and so engage and retain Europe’s ageing workforce for longer. Among the insights that emerged was the crucial role of companies in fostering sustainable work; based on companies’ concrete actions, national policies can be framed.
