Rationale
Equal at Work 2005-07 is a large partnership (53 partner organisations and two associate partners) of key actors in the Dublin region operating across the private, public and community and voluntary sectors of the labour market. This project aims to encourage inclusive employment through open human resource practices.

It intends to do this by developing and piloting new tools for culture change in equality and diversity management in private sector companies; by developing systems for the recruitment, progression and promotion of an inclusive diverse workforce in the Dublin public employment health sector; by developing practical tools for improving efficiency and inclusive employment and progression in the community & voluntary sector, and by supporting the development of a more accessible and equal workplace with a culture of diversity in service provision amongst the local authorities in Dublin.

This new project involves many large players in the Dublin labour market: all four Dublin local authorities, the Eastern Regional Health Authority and four major hospitals, the National College of Ireland and the Chartered Institute of Personal Development and six major private sector employers along with trades unions, employer’s representative organisations and representative NGOs, business and community groups.

Objectives
Public Sector Health Site:
•To support the recruitment, progression and promotion of a diverse workforce in the Dublin region Health sector by the development of identified tools and approaches which promote equality of opportunity for all.

Community & Voluntary Sector Site
•To further support the adaptability of the C&V sector by developing sectoral and organisational systems and structures so as to lead to an improvement in the efficiency and competitiveness of the C&V sector and its organisations and, as part of this process, to promote and enhance the potential of the sector to improve entry/access of excluded groups to employment, while also supporting the retention and progression of existing workers.

Private Sector Site
•To improve the adaptability of 6 Dublin based large private sector companies by introducing active diversity management policies and practices, consistent with corporate social responsibility, which support the companies to be more competitive and innovative. Such change will support the development of a stable, diverse and creative workforce and improve organisational knowledge management in a way that addresses business needs and encourages systemic change - thus promoting greater social inclusion and equality in the private sector.

Public Sector Local Authority & FAS Site
•To support the Public Sector to create a more equal workplace and to provide quality public services to better meet the needs of all service users – thus promoting greater understanding and diversity management skills throughout the whole public local authority sector.

Innovation
The structure of the project
The structure of the project, focussing its attention on three levels of action/learning:

-the local project sites where DP members come together to try out solutions to problems identified,
-the Learning Site (whole DP) which focuses on dissemination and mainstreaming of learning emanating from the project roll-out phase. This is where all DP members come together regularly to share the learning and promote mainstreaming.
-The inter-site working group which focuses the attention of all partners on an agreed priority theme/issue. In this project it is proposed to have an Inter-site Working Group on Disability, chaired by NTDI to focus on disability and to seek to gain added value to the local site actions on disability.

The structure is innovative and designed to give added value to the local actions and ensure that the learning from each sector is shared in a way that integrates the labour market into a cohesive unit where the actual culture of the market itself can be affected and changed.

The local social partnership players
The project has the social partners as the basic players. The siting of project activity in various sites around the Dublin region, each with its complement of social partners working at local level seeks to strengthen the concept of social partnership and make it a reality for problem solving at the local level. The use of the players, usually seen working together at national level only, is innovative.

The learning seminars/conferences
The learning seminars are planned as major events during the lifetime of the project – where labour market activists will be presented with the learning as it develops and will also be challenged to take on board the learning and lessons emerging from the local action sites. All members of the DP will attend these seminars/conferences so that the mainstreaming of the lessons can happen as an integral part of the project and not as an add-on.

Seeking to intervene in systems/structures changes
Many other projects focus on large numbers of training programmes providing skills to numerous people – this application, focusing on adaptability - is different and innovative in that it seeks to bring about a culture change, though strategic actions aimed at changing human resource management systems in the Dublin labour market. Thus truly focusing on the adaptability element of the thematic area of application.

Links with Northern Ireland
Equal at Work has made links with local development companies, hospitals, Belfast City Council, and projects in Belfast. There is a possibility that such links could be added to, by inviting those from Belfast to share in the lessons of this project, which would have application to the largest employment geographical sector in Northern Ireland – greater Belfast.

It is also proposed under Round 2 of EQUAL to involve a Northern Ireland EQUAL project in the transnational partnership the DP will have to develop as part of Round 2. Initial contact has been made with the University of Ulster regarding a proposal they have submitted under Round 2 of EQUAL under the pillar ‘ Equal Opportunities for Women and Men’. This proposal is focusing on reducing gender gaps in certain fields of employment and supporting job desegregation.

Unique transnational element
The Dublin Employment Pact has made links with a range of employment consortia (partnerships) in other European cities. In particular it is in discussions with employment partnerships and authorities in Poland, Slovakia, Czech Republic, and elsewhere with a view to establishing a European dimension to EQUAL which goes beyond mere exchanges of information but also involves the adoption of new systems approaches by partners, during the timeframe of EQUAL 2, as developed by members of the transnational partnership.

Empowerment - Partners
Equal at Work 2 considers the criteria of empowerment crucial to the success of this project. For this reason, from the outset all partners have participated fully in the developmental stage where ideas were gathered, discussed and prioritised. The initial ideas for the Round 2 application came from the partners. The agreeing of aims, objectives and actions to be undertaken, as part of the Round 2 project, was again the result of the partners coming together to discuss these issues as part of a series of facilitated focus group sessions during Spring and Summer of 2004.

The actual make-up of the local action sites have been decided by the partners and they include employer, health service providers, employee representatives, training bodies, statutory bodies, trade unionists, educationalists and local authority players as well as those excluded from the labour market by current practices. It is believed that this will enhance the creation of conditions whereby solutions will be devised and informed by the relevant excluded groups and their representatives, rather than on their behalf.

Rationale

Text available in

Fondements
Le projet “Equal at Work 2005-07” repose sur un partenariat étendu (53 organisations partenaires et deux partenaires associés) d’acteurs clés de la région de Dublin travaillant dans les secteurs privé, public, communautaire et bénévole du marché du travail. Le présent projet vise à encourager un emploi enrichi grâce à des méthodes de ressources humaines ouvertes.
Il vise cet objectif en développant et mettant en œuvre de nouveaux outils destinés à modifier la culture en matière de gestion de l’égalité et de la diversité dans des entreprises du secteur privé, en développant des systèmes pour le recrutement, le développement et la promotion d’une main-d’œuvre riche et diversifiée dans le secteur des emplois de soins de santé du secteur public de Dublin, en développant des outils pratiques permettant d’améliorer l’efficacité, le recrutement et le progression dans les secteurs communautaire et bénévole et en appuyant le développement d’un marché du travail plus accessible et plus égalitaire grâce à une culture de la diversité dans la fourniture de services au sein des autorités locales de Dublin. Ces nouveaux projets impliquent un grand nombre d’acteurs importants du marché du travail de Dublin : la totalité des quatre autorités locales de Dublin, l’autorité de la santé régional de l’est (Eastern Regional Health Authority) et quatre hôpitaux importants, le National College of Ireland et le Chartered Institute of Personal Development, ainsi que six employeurs majeurs du secteur privé, des syndicats, des organisations représentatives des employeurs, des ONG représentatives et des groupes communautaires et professionnels.

Objective

Objectifs
Site de la santé du secteur public :
Soutenir le recrutement, la progression et la promotion d’une main-d’œuvre diversifiée dans le secteur de la santé de la région de Dublin par le développement d’outils et d’approches identifiées favorisant l’égalité des chances pour tous.
Site du secteur communautaire et bénévole
Soutenir encore davantage l’adaptabilité du secteur communautaire et bénévole en développant des systèmes et des structures sectorielles et organisationnelles de façon à susciter une amélioration de l’efficacité et de la compétitivité du secteur communautaire et bénévole et de ses organisations et, dans le cadre de ce processus, promouvoir et améliorer le potentiel de ce secteur afin de favoriser l’entrée/accès des groupes exclus à l’emploi tout en appuyant la conservation et la progression des travailleurs existants.
Site du secteur privé
Améliorer l’adaptabilité de six grandes entreprises du secteur privé de Dublin en y introduisant des politiques et des pratiques de gestion active de la diversité, en cohérence avec la responsabilité sociale des entreprises, qui permettant à ces entreprises d’être plus concurrentielles et innovantes. Une telle évolution favorisera le développement d’une force de travail stable, diversifiée et créative et améliorera la gestion des connaissances organisationnelles d’une manière susceptible de répondre aux besoins opérationnels et d’encourager un changement systémique, favorisant ainsi une meilleure inclusion sociale et une plus grande égalité dans le secteur privé.
Site de l’autorité locale du secteur public et de la FAS
Permettre au secteur public de créer un monde du travail plus égalitaire et de fournir des services publics de qualité susceptibles de mieux répondre aux besoins de tous les utilisateurs de service, favorisant ainsi une meilleure connaissance et de meilleures compétences en matière de gestion de la diversité dans l’ensemble du secteur de l’autorité publique locale.

Innovations
La structure du projet, qui concentre son attention sur trois niveaux d’action/apprentissage :
- les sites locaux du projet où les membres du DP se réunissent pour tester des solutions aux problèmes identifiés,
- le site d’apprentissage (la totalité du DP) qui se concentre sur le diffusion et la généralisation des leçons tirées de la phase de mise en place du projet. C’est là que tous les membres du DP se réunissent régulièrement pour partager les leçons apprises et promouvoir leur généralisation.
- le groupe de travail inter-sites qui concentre l’attention de tous les partenaires sur un thème/problème prioritaire convenu. Dans le cadre de ce projet, il a été proposé de créer un groupe de travail inter-sites sur le handicap, présidé par le NTDI, qui se concentrera sur le handicap et cherchera à apporter de la valeur ajoutée aux mesures locales et qui garantira que les leçons tirées de chaque secteur seront partagées d’une manière qui intégrera le marché du travail dans une unité homogène dans laquelle la culture même du marché peut être affectée et modifiée.

Les acteurs du partenariat social local
Les acteurs de base du projet sont ses partenaires sociaux. L’implantation des activités du projet sur plusieurs sites dans la région de Dublin, chacun comprenant sa part de partenaires sociaux travaillant au niveau local, vise à renforcer le concept de partenariat social et d’en faire une réalité pour la résolution de problèmes au niveau local. Le recours à ces acteurs, qu’en règle générale, on voit travailler ensemble au niveau national uniquement, est novateur.

Les séminaires/conférences d’apprentissage
Les séminaires d’apprentissage sont programmés en tant qu’événements majeurs au cours de la durée de vie du projet à l’occasion desquels les activistes du marché du travail se verront présenter les leçons acquises à mesure que le projet avancera et se verront également proposer d’adopter les enseignements émergeant des sites d’action locaux. Tous les membres du DP participeront à ces séminaires/conférences, de sorte qu’une diffusion générale des leçons pourra se faire dans le cadre du projet et non en complément à celui-ci.

Tentatives d’intervention dans les changements des systèmes/structures
Un grand nombre d’autres projets se concentrent sur de nombreux programmes de formation en offrant des compétences à de nombreuses personnes. La présente application, qui se concentre sur l’adaptabilité, est différente et innovante dans la mesure où elle cherche à mettre en place un changement de culture par l’intermédiaire d’actions stratégiques visant à modifier les systèmes de gestion des ressources humaines sur le marché du travail de Dublin, se concentrant ainsi véritablement sur l’élément adaptabilité du domaine thématique de l’application.

Liens avec l’Irlande du Nord
Le projet “Equal at Work” a établi des liens avec des entreprises locales de développement, des hôpitaux, le Conseil municipal de Belfast et des projets développés à Belfast. La possibilité existe pour que de tels liens puissent être multipliés en invitant les parties concernées de Belfast à partager les leçons apprises dans ce projet, qui pourraient trouver des applications dans le secteur géographique d’emploi le plus vaste d’Irlande du Nord, le Grand Belfast.

Il a également été proposé dans le cadre de la Phase 2 du projet EQUAL d’impliquer un projet EQUAL d’Irlande du Nord dans le partenariat transnational que le DP devra mettre en œuvre dans le cadre de la Phase 2. Des premiers contacts ont été établis avec l’Université d’Ulster concernant une proposition qu’elle avait soumise dans le cadre de la Phase 2 de EQUAL sous le pilier Égalité des chances pour les hommes et les femmes. Cette proposition vise à réduire le fossé entre les sexes dans certains secteurs de l’emploi et à favoriser la déségrégation à l’emploi.

Élément transnational unique
Le Pacte pour l’emploi de Dublin a établi des liens avec un large éventail de consortiums (partenariats) pour l’emploi dans d’autres villes européennes. Il est en particulier en discussion avec des partenariats pour l’emploi et des autorités en Pologne, Slovaquie, République tchèque et dans d’autres pays avec la perspective de donner une dimension européenne à EQUAL qui ira au-delà de simples échanges d’informations mais comprendra également l’adoption de nouvelles approches systémiques par les partenaires pendant la durée de EQUAL 2, développées par des membres du partenariat transnational.

Responsabilisation des participants
Des groupes de réflexion continueront à se réunir au cours de l’étape Action 1 de la phase de mise en œuvre pour garantir que toutes les organisations pertinentes / acteurs clés / parties prenantes clés sont impliqués dans le processus de prise de décision du projet sur chaque site, assurant ainsi un gain maximal pour les acteurs et les groupes de réflexion impliqués.

Responsabilisation des partenaires
Le projet “Equal at Work 2” considère que le critère de responsabilisation est crucial pour le succès de ce projet. Pour cette raison, dès le départ, tous les partenaires ont participé pleinement à l’étape de développement au cours de laquelle des idées ont été rassemblées, discutées et classées par ordre de priorité. Les idées initiales de l’application de la Phase 2 sont venues des partenaires. L’obtention d’un consensus concernant les buts, les objectifs et les mesures à prendre, dans le cadre du projet Phase 2, a à nouveau été le résultat d’une réunion des partenaires pour discuter de ces questions dans le cadre d’une série de sessions programmées des groupes de réflexion au cours du printemps et de l’été 2004.

La mise en place effective des sites d’action locaux a été décidée par les partenaires et ces sites incluent employeurs, fournisseurs de services de soins de santé, représentants des employés, organismes de formation, organismes statutaires, syndicalistes, enseignants et acteurs des autorités locales ainsi que les personnes exclues du marché du travail par les pratiques actuelles. On estime que ce projet améliorera la création de conditions qui permettront d’imaginer des solutions qui seront alimentées directement par les groupes d’exclus concernés et leurs représentants, et non en leur nom.
