UNI Europa ICTS, together with the FES Competence Centre ‘Future of Work’ will host a joint session at LABOR.A 2022 on September 21, 2022 at 2pm. The topic will be “Is AI becoming the second boss? A workers’ perspective on algorithm management at the workplace“.

How can we preserve and extend decent work in the decade of transformation – initiated by climate change, globalisation, digitalisation and demographic change? How can the sustainable conversion of our way of doing business, working and living succeed? These are the topics LABOR.A® will focus on their platform on Work of the Future.

Algorithm management (AM) tools are mainly used in the hiring and recruitment process; for performance management and everyday working decision making. In general, AM is a diverse set of technological tools and techniques to remotely manage workforces, relying on data collection and surveillance of workers to enable automated or semi-automated decision-making.

In our session we would like to take the opportunity a to talk about the impact of AM at the Workplace from a workers’ perspective and to discuss the results from the UNI Europa – FES survey on Algorithm Management; giving answers to important questions, such as:

  •  What is the awareness of Workers of the use and the challenges/risks of AM tools?
  • How do employers prevent or mitigate the risks generated by AM use?
  • What are the experiences with the actions/activities of trade unions to prevent/mitigate the risks generated by AM use?
  •  What are the expectations towards employers to prevent and mitigate the risks generated by AM? What are the expectations towards trade unions regarding prevention and mitigation of the risks generated by AM use?
