Employability in the Railway Sector in the light of digitalisation and automation
wmp will provide desk research and empirical analyses for the railway social partners, the Community of European Railways and Infrastructure Companies, CER and the European Transport Workers Federation, ETF in the context of their joint project that was launched in May 2020.
Digitalisation and automation in European railway passenger and freight transport is a key component of implementing the single European railway market and increasing the goal of a massive shift to rail of transport activities in order to reduce carbon emissions and make transport greener. However, the digital change will only succeed when workers and employees will be actively involved and supported during the digitalisation journey.
wmp consult will support the 18-month project by providing external expertise on employability challenges linked to digitalization, automation and other trends. We will map the drivers of change that have an impact on employability and support the social partners in developing a joint understanding and possible follow-up activities that take into account the large diversity of company structures, national framework conditions and plurality of social dialogues in the EU Member States.
