Tomorrow, 18 September, Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs, Skills and Labour Mobility, Marianne Thyssen, and Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society, Mariya Gabriel, will attend the very first meeting of the High-Level Group on the impact of digital transformation, set up by the Commission in May 2018.

The aim of the High-Level Group is to analyse the impact of the digital transformation on EU labour markets, and issue a set of policy recommendations accordingly by February 2019. Digitalisation is one of the biggest challenges faced by today's labour market, as also recognised under the European Pillar of Social Rights, the EU's framework to create convergence between Member States, towards better living and working conditions in a fast-changing world of work.
