Strategies & Governancein eSkills & Work

The provision of strategy and policy advice has been one of to the core activities in the skills and work domain at empirica for more than 30 years now. Starting back in the 1980s we have been active in developing and implementing new ways of working in a large number of insurance companies, banks and other service organizations.  In the Middle East, we recently developed a national policy strategy in this domain. It is being continued by the implementation of new ways of ICT-based working especially for women in several large corporations in the oil & gas industry, financial and telecommunications sector but also ministries as a means to bring the growing number of well educated women in the Arabic world into jobs and the employment market.

Further services offered by empirica include the development and implementation of measures for the continuous employment of older workers. In this area we are carrying out projects with large globally operating companies in the financial service like Deutsche Bank, or insurance companies such as Continentale but also companies from the IT sector like SAP.

For the Federal German government and with the ‘Forum Info 2000’ empirica established stakeholder dialogues in several domains including skills and work and supported policy development for paving the way of Germany towards the information society. Similar services are carried out and offered to other national governments and stakeholders.

For already more than 10 years we are supporting different DGs at the European Commission in policy development and the implementation of suitable governance structures run by different actors in areas relating to digital literacy, e-skills and e-leadership skills. These take many different formats and include for instance the development and activities relating to the implementation of governance models for the operation of European e-skills quality label awarding and related online services and tools with a series of relevant European stakeholders. These activities have been expanded towards the e-leadership domain.
