Annual Survey of the European Union Programme for Employment and Social Solidarity, PROGRESS

Welcome to the PROGRESS Annual Survey!

The survey is structured around five distinct but interlinked PROGRESS policy sections:

  1. Employment (supports the implementation of the European Employment Strategy (EES));
  2. Social protection and social inclusion (supports the implementation of the open method of coordination (OMC) in the field of social protection and inclusion);
  3. Working conditions, including restructuration (supports the improvement of the working environment and working conditions, including health and safety at work and reconciling work and family life);
  4. Anti-discrimination and diversity (supports the effective implementation of the principle of non-discrimination and promotes its mainstreaming in all EU policies);
  5. Gender equality (supports the effective implementation of the principle of gender equality and promotes gender mainstreaming in all EU policies).

Each of these policy sections has their own separate questionnaire, which are similar in structure, but are adjusted to the outcomes and outputs of the concrete policy section. Each questionnaire consists of multiple choice questions and should take you around 15 minutes to complete. The questionnaires are available in English, French and German. Your responses will be kept strictly confidential and will not be divulged to anyone.

To start the survey, please select the appropriate questionnaire available below, which best matches your area of competence. For authentication purposes, we would request that you provide your e-mail address. Within a few minutes you will receive further instructions and the link to the online questionnaire.

For those with more than one area of competence, please note that on completing a questionnaire you will be given the chance to return to this page to access the other questionnaires dealing with the remaining policy sections.

We would be grateful if you could complete the questionnaire by 31 January, 2014
