Check out the new Social Agenda issue 48 to learn more about the Pillar of Social Rights and the search towards a “social triple A” rating in Europe.
The Pillar serves as a reference framework for European Commission proposals on work-life balance and working time.
There are three key elements that the Pillar aims to improve:

- Fair working conditions;
- Social protection and inclusion.
The welfare system and the labour market are regulated by the European Pillar of Social Rights, which is built on these 20 principles. The publication is available in French, German, and English here.
