Benchmarking Working Europe 2020: workers' participation in the times of Covid-19

This year’s 20th anniversary issue of our flagship publication Benchmarking Working Europe is out. The year's special 20th anniversary edition's focus is obviously, on the impact of the pandemic on the world of labour.

Here, we recommend particularly Chapter 6 dealing with workers' participation in times of pandemic, where we deal with questions such as:

  • company restructuring in a pandemic;
  • confidentiality of information in a pandemic;
  • democracy at work and occupational health & safety;
  • how shareholders' extraction of profits makes companies more vulnerable to crises like Covid-19
  • social dialogue in times of a pandemic.

We put together a dedicated website with online contents: visit https://benchmarking2020.eu/
