ENSIE joint call on the EU to ensure an inclusive labour market for all

This year, the European Pillar of Social Rights (EPSR) celebrates its 3rd anniversary! Proclaimed in November 2017, it aims to deliver new and more effective rights for citizens. It builds upon 20 key principles, structured in three categories:

  • Equal opportunities and access to the labour market
  • Fair working conditions
  • Social protection and inclusion

In this framework, ENSIE is proud to publish and to share its Booklet that particularly focuses on WISEs’ contribution to the implementation of the European Pillar of Social Rights (EPSR) principles, introduces their good practices and finally, presents ENSIE’s recommendations for a better implementation of the EPSR.

In fact, through diversified and innovative activities, WISEs do directly and indirectly contribute to the implementation of 15 out of 20 European Pillar of Social Rights principles. The Booklet especially focuses on the 9 main principles WISEs mostly contribute to through their daily functioning.

The recommendations presented in this paper are based on the network’s analysis and expertise related to the relevant policy areas in which WISEs operate as well as on ENSIE’s Member Organisations’ field experience related to the social and professional inclusion of disadvantaged people.

This analysis is also the basis of the ENSIE’s recommendations for the European Commission’s EPSR Action plan which is scheduled to be published in 2021.
