Promoting employers' social services in social dialogue

 

PESSIS+ aims to strengthen the capacity of the Federation of European Social Employers, in view of their participation in European Social Dialogue structures. The project’s main activities will include national events in ten EU Member States to engage with relevant national employers, discussions with trade union organisations in view of setting-up the right structures and research on the state of play of social dialogue structures in social services in 28 EU Member States.

PESSIS+ had 3 main objectives:
– Better understanding of Social Dialogues around Europe:  By the end of the project, project’s partners had a perspective from 25 EU countries.
– To get to know better the work force in Europe and try to find together with EPSU solutions to face the main challenges.
– Reinforce the Social Dialogue at both National and European level.
Thanks to PESSIS+, Social Employers gained a better visibility at European level having at present 26 members representing 17 European countries. 

The final results of the project will be the following:

  • Seven country studies on the state of play of social dialogue structures in the social services sector in Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Latvia, Luxembourg and Malta (in original and English language);

  • A European report to assess the state of play of social dialogue structures in the Personal and Household Services in Europe (in EN);
