The Lisbon Council launches The 2019 Future of Work Index: How the World of Work is Changing – and How Policy Needs to Change with It, a policy brief that examines how the workplace is changing and the way social policy needs to evolve along with it. The product of two years of roundtables and quantitative research, it highlights six key trends in the evolving workplace – Changing Workforce, Evolving Workplace, New Careers, Global Economy, the Rise of Independent Working and Policy Lags. It then measures and ranks all 28 European Union members on the success with which they are transitioning to modern ways of working – and the effectiveness of their social systems to provide genuine social security and adapt to changing social needs. The policy brief also profiles eight countries (Belgium, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Italy, Romania, Sweden and the United Kingdom), detailing each country’s performance as measured by this cutting-edge new index. The policy brief includes the Future of Work Policy Bank at http://policybank.eu/, which tracks reform efforts in EU member states in the domains of social protection, accessible labour markets and entrepreneurship.
