Accent on job creation, mobility, better working conditions and work-life balance in 2006
Access to good quality jobs for all workers is a central policy concern in the European Union. The Foundations 2006 work programme will focus on this priority issue, while also dealing with the related issues of employment creation and retention, mobility of workers and their families, working time arrangements and worklife balance.
Key tasks for 2006 include making an input into the 2006 European Year of Workers Mobility, and presenting findings from the fourth European Working Conditions Survey and the Company Survey on Working Time and Work-life Balance.
Finally, in November 2006, the Foundation will host the third Foundation Forum, entitled Competitive Europe, Social Europe partners or rivals?.
