The future of work in the digital era

HesaMag 16

It is hard to deny that digital technologies are revolutionising not only our working conditions but also our relationship with work. The confluence of increasingly efficient devices and powerful algorithms is encouraging start-ups to sprout up all around us. These popular platforms demonstrate an impressive capacity to adapt and to overcome any obstacles that get in their way. Together with their "partners" they are establishing a completely uneven balance of power.
In industry we are gradually seeing the development of high-tech devices dreamt up for the leisure industry (smartglasses, augmented reality applications, etc.) and a new generation of robots described as "collaborative", "learning" or even "intelligent".
The intellectual professions are riding the wave, too. Again platforms offer the services of programmers, translators, editors, legal advisers, etc. to clients across the globe.

    Labour inspection: a public service in crisis

    Labour inspection services across Europe have been going through an existential crisis. With few exceptions, workforces have been reduced while inspectors have been assigned more extensive duties. Faced with these transformations in the world of work, the sheer scale of their mission can leave labour inspectors feeling powerless.

    Construction workers at the mercy of social dumping

    Besides the challenge of combatting social dumping, the special report addresses other major concerns for building workers and their unions: the continuing exposure to asbestos, women's access to this industry and improving the safety of construction machinery.
