[Excerpt] The main objective of this comparative study was to gather information on how social partner organisations across the European Union introduce and use new topics and innovative approaches, tools and practices. It focuses on the responses explored by the two sides of industry to address various challenges and needs emerging in working life. The scope of the study is limited to the practices of the social partners at cross-sectoral, sectoral and national level between 2000 and 2014. Building on a literature review of research by Eurofound and others, the study draws on information and analysis provided by Eurofound’s Network of European correspondents across the EU and Norway.
