E-commerce, big data, crowdfunding and cloud working – a few years ago these terms and similar keywords were only familiar to experts. Meanwhile they belong to everyday life. Digitalization has found its way into our lives – whether private or professional. Work has also changed; it offers many more opportunities than two decades ago. New markets and professions have been created, working hours and methods are changing too. At the same time digitalization entails risks: jobs are subject to cuts, employees are expected to be available 24/7.
These changes have obviously not been lost on politicians. The German Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs addressed this topic in detail in the “Work 4.0 Dialogue“. The opening event took place on April 22, 2015, under the slogan “Re-imagining work”. Andrea Nahles, Federal Minister for Labor and Social Affairs, welcomed 300 experts to discuss topics surrounding the future of the workplace. At the same time, the basis of the dialogue was presented: the Green Paper Work 4.0.
Parallel to the expert talks, Federal Minister Andrea Nahles visited companies in July 2015 to form her own opinion about the problems both employees and employers have to deal with, and what solutions can be found. Those interested could follow the so-called “summer journey” and Ms. Nahles on the Facebook page of the BMA (Ministry for Labor and Social Affairs) – a public discussion with non-experts was explicitly requested. Citizens could voice their opinion on Facebook and Twitter, and propose solutions or suggestions. The website of the GermanFederal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs gives a comprehensible view of the dialogue process Work 4.0. The page was also used as a platform for the exchange of opinions. In addition, the future of work was discussed offline: in autumn 2015, a movie festival held in 25 cities also served as a forum of discussion.
The result of the public and expert dialogue, the White Paper Work 4.0. will be presented at the final conference at the end of 2016. The results and insight acquired from the dialogue, the answers to most of the open questions and a list of possible constructive options will then be presented in the document.
