Work Life 2000: Quality in Work

Printer-friendly version

Location

Malmo, Sweden
Canada

The Work Life 2000 Conference is the culmination of a
large gathering of knowledge of working life issues.
Through the Work Life 2000 project, some 1000
researchers and practitioners from different disciplines
and countries have documented what we know today
about working life in a long series of international
scientific workshops.

At the Work Life 2000 Conference, policy-makers from
Europe gather to draw practical conclusions from the
research findings and to formulate a working life
policy. There will be parallel sessions on labour market
issues, work organisation, work environment and
diversity in working life. The reports from the
workshops will be presented in knowledge updates
and policy briefing sessions, followed by round table
discussions.

Conference Programme
Opening session

Round Table One: Diversity in Working Life – a
Policy Challenge for Europe
Workplaces used to be homogenous. But today
workforce diversity is often considered as an
important management strategy. This round table
discussion will focus on what diversity in working
life really means, policies and practice.

Round Table Two: Labour Market
What do we know about the process of job
creation? What employment strategies are needed
in the future? What will the enlargement of the
European Union mean? These are some of the
issues that will be raised in this round table
discussion.

Round Table Three: Work Organisation
Work organisation is a key issue when addressing
the work-related health problems of today, when
we live in a 24-hour-society. The meaning of a
sustainable work organisation will be discussed in
this round table.

Round Table Four: Work Environment
Many traditional work environment problems
remain, or are even getting worse, while new ones
appear. This round table will discuss how to
approach them.
