The Digital Workplace: skills for a changing work environment
Date du début: 1 déc. 2015, Date de fin: 30 nov. 2017 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

The purpose of this project is to promote an innovative organization approach for working, meeting the needs of a market and labour world that is more than ever globalized, digitally embedded and ever changing. As physical boundaries tend to dissolve, the traditional workplace transform itself in wherever and whenever the worker can be: at office, at home, at the airport, at someone else’ office or in a co-working space. This approach can impact positively on the life of workers as well as on companies’ life, by boosting productivity, improve the quality of life and promote a better balance between family, leisure and work time. Innovation and creativity can also be stimulated by this new way of organizing day and nighttime. But all this transformation requires people and companies properly skilled, otherwise they won’t stay competitive and will not benefit from those changes. The project addresses these needs by define a methodology for providing key staff and companies with a set of critical skills. This skill-set is mostly digital but also encompasses communication, organization and stress management. The project therefore aims to: a) - Identify and define best practices and to define the profile of the “ideal” digital worker and employer, so to define consequently their skillset and competence-based training and certification b) - Design and test the training to acquire the skills at issue. The training will be mainly digital based, delivered as a MOOC and composed of Learning Objects, Open Educational Resources and Learning Outcomes. It will be structured on EQF level 4-7 – thus essentially for HE and VET c) - Design and test the certification scheme for workers and employers, with clear evaluation rubrics, audit and awarding mechanism and based on the innovative approach and tools of (digital) Open Badges d) - Promote the adoption of the model, acting holistically to let the various components of the labour market overcome the obstacles and enhance productivity, personal and community well being. Approximately in total 400 persons will be directly involved in the activities organized by the project: - 108 in the research as informants - 24 education professionals as trainees - 80 employers/HR managers and workers in the trials - 170 participants in the multiplier events. Trained trainers will train in turn 10 other professionals per country, therefore approximately other 60 VET and HE staff will be involved. Indirectly, a large audience will benefit from project activities and in particular from dissemination. About 1,000 subscribers are expected for the project newsletter. About 500 recipients are expected for final documents (reports and policy paper). Promotional videos will be uploaded on YouTube project dedicated channel and at least 10,000 views can be expected. The project website is expected to be visited by about 3,000 visitors at all. Given the overall goal of creation the ideal workplace - including skills, settings and organization – the project staff will act as a prototype: some of them already are digital workers and, all together, they will keep on working in this way within the project framework, to be considered as the project digital workplace laboratory.
