Digital work requires us to rethink working conditions
More and more high-skilled professionals participate in contests on online platforms to offer their services. Increased flexibility, the development of their portfolio and access to new clients were often mentioned as reasons to engage in these non-standard forms of work, according to a recently published study from Eurofound. Although platform work offers more accessible entries to the labour market, challenges with income insecurity, platform dependency and lacking managerial support structures persists. Member states and social partners should ensure that these workers have access to social protection, education and training, and representation.
