The European and Economic Social Committee calls for a fair European digital transformation

The European and Economic Social Committee (EESC) has released and opinion statement entitled “Transition management in a digitalised world of work”, which outlines proposed priorities for managing the EU workforce’s skill development in accordance with its digitalisation. Emphasis is put on the developing AI technologies that will change many roles within the European workforce and calls for continued skills development and learning opportunities for employees. The opinion expresses the importance of staying true to EU’s values, and that the transition management should work towards “full employment, social progress, a high level of protection, and reducing poverty and inequalities”.

The full statement can be found on the EESC website.
