Work-life balance in the ICT sector
EU policies on work-life balance
In 2017 the EU adopted the Pillar of Social Rights to help deliver more effective rights for citizens. It builds on 20 key principles, many of which are relevant to gender equality and work-life balance in employment. One of the goals of the European Pillar for Social Rights is the New Start initiative, which aims to address the work–life balance challenges faced by working parents and carers.
A number of the key principles of the EU Pillar of Social Rights have a direct relevance to work–life balance measures and the employment of women.
