The New World of Work


What are the trends going to be for personnel management in the years to come? From an employment law point of view, how will companies and employees relate to each other in these changing times? These questions were central to the congress with its grandiose title "The changing world of work: Responding to the challenges of the 21st century from a global and an EU perspective", held on the 14th and 15th of April 2011 in Brussels by the International Bar Association. It transpired that many companies struggle with current issues such as the impact of modern technology on shop floor relations (think of the use of social media) and awkward questions about pay structures, the design of training, career planning, recruitment and selection, equal pay for men and women, diversity, international regulations, employee participation and increasing occupational diseases such as stress and burn out. In short: how can you as a company provide legal form to The New World of Work?
