The risks were also pointed out – de-professionalization, increased monitoring, social exclusion, as well as the lack of qualified labor force, and the increasing pressure that employees in this sector feel - increased demands and enormous responsibility. Working hours, new skills and overcoming the gap between older more experienced workers and younger workers who have digital skills, new forms of employment, health and safety at work, energy efficiency and environmental protection are certainly issues for a new agenda and new solutions.
