Attractive workplace for all: company cases

The Lisbon strategy aims to make the EU by 2010 'the most competitive and
dynamic knowledge-based economy in the world, capable of sustainable economic
growth, with more and better jobs and greater social cohesion'. Recent research
from the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working
Conditions shows that there are companies across Europe implementing innovative
employment policies, practices and agreements, and, therefore, contributing to
the Lisbon strategy objectives.

These cases 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


  • business creation and entrepreneurship,

  • employability, <(li>
  • increasing the labour market participation of underrepresented groups and
  • people at risk of exclusion,

  • pay, and

  • flexibility.


The involvement of the social partners at company and sectoral level is a
significant aspect of the development of these policies and their outcomes.
