Set up in 2003, the European Working Conditions Observatory (EWCO) provides regular information on quality of work and employment issues in the EU Member States and at EU level. The Observatory is supported by an extensive network of correspondents covering all EU countries, plus Norway.
EWCO information is complemented by the European Working Conditions Surveys, which have been monitoring the working conditions of European workers on a periodic basis since 1991.
The Observatory also contributes to the identification of good practice examples on a company/worker level. The attractive workplace for all project aims at identifying pioneer company practices, policies and agreements and showing how the Lisbon Strategy is being implemented on the ground at company level.
