Attractive workplace for all

These 102 cases, dating from 2006-2007, are examples of 'win-win situations', showing that it is possible to combine quality of work and employment with economic performance. They deal with key dimensions of the Lisbon strategy such as employability, increasing the labour market participation of underrepresented groups and people at risk of exclusion, pay, flexibility, and business creation and entrepreneurship. The involvement of the social partners at company and sectoral level is a significant aspect of the development of these policies and their outcomes.

21 listopada 2007
  • Austria
Austria’s leading salt producer Salinen Austria AG, which has about 340 employees, was state-owned until 1997. In the course of privatisation, the successful bidder offered a financial participation model for the employees. This model was in the form of a private foundation, which would hold 10% of the company’s shares. While the first dividend was put into a social fund, all dividends since have been equally disbursed to every employee.
