No leadership team in a multinational organisation can take any decisions without the valuable input from the people who make it happen every single day. Since we are passionate about making European Works Councils meaningful to all stakeholders, we have been organising a wide array of EWC events with a very diverse audience to that extent.
Our latest EWC conference came at a time where European Works Councils have had to prove their effectiveness like never before. All EWC stakeholders had to completely change their way of working and were forced to make the switch to online meetings.
Below you can find the recordings of the EWC E-Conference.
