New ways of workingin eSkills & Work

Implementation of innovative models for the employment of an increasingly diverse workforce, making smart use of flexible forms of work organisation in terms of working space and time, can help boost a company’s performance while at the same time offering employees improved work-life balance.
We develop, support and moderate processes aiming at the implementation of new forms of work organisation and employment in companies and public administrations. These activities range from topics like "employment models for an ageing and older workforce" to "mobile working / smart working ".
empirica has thirty years of Europe-wide experience in investigating trends and advice on how to implement new, ICT-enabled trends in work. Organisations like SAP, Deutsche Bank, Sparkasse Frankfurt, insurance companies like Continentale, Barmenia, Deutscher Herold, Zürich, Württembergische, Signal Iduna, HDI, daughter companies of European banks like Societe Generale and further organisations from the service sector but also national governments including those from countries like Qatar in the mid-East and large corporations in this region are among our customers in this area. In the latter we are developing and implementing new ways of ICT-based working especially for women in large corporations from the oil & gas industry, the financial, telecommunications and public sectors as a means to bring the growing number of well educated women in the Arabic world into jobs and the employment market.
Repeated representative surveys in Europe and a large number of case studies carried out since the early 1980's round off this empirical basis.
empirica also develops sound analyses and concepts for policy measures for all aspects of innovative forms of work and regularly organises national and international conferences, workshops and seminars bringing together experts from industry, policy, the social partners and academia.
