It is revealed how in the context of ensuring the processes of economic power democratization, the problem of social quality of life not only as a certain standard, but also as an institutional characteristic of a social subject that is socialized in the logical and historical context of socialization processes becomes relevant.

The socio-dimensional context of "friendly relations" development through the use of production democracy tools in the European Union countries is characterized, the importance of these processes for Ukraine, which aspires to join the EU, is revealed. "Production democracy" is viewed as having the character of social dialogue, which reaches the national level, and therefore social interaction and social cooperation between the state, employers and employees yield results at the level of an individual country’s society in terms of promoting the development of the economy as a whole. It is shown that the social factor, along with the production function of productive work and the social function of activities, forms the productive function of social interaction, since the development of both individual businesses and the economy as a whole is also achieved thanks to social cooperation (interaction).

It is substantiated that the effect of action arises as a result of social interaction, that is, social interaction is a social designer of action, since the mass "production democracy" thanks to the democratization of economic power becomes one of the successful forms of social development of business and society as a whole.

Along with welfare state model, a model of social interaction of the state, business and population using the social pillars of society is being developed based on the ideology of "participatory society". It is shown – drawing on the experience of certain countries, such as Great Britain and Japan – how to form in Ukraine, by effectively involving the social pillars of society and their institutions, a successful model of post-war recovery and economic development based on the political and economic model of solidarity of the main partners, on the principles of consensus between government, business and population in order to build a highly effective post-war recovery model.
