Enhancing workers' mobility and reinvigorating EURES

19-02-2016

After more than 20 years in place, the cooperation network for labour mobility – EURES – shows some shortcomings, such as a lack of transparency in labour markets, a constrained matching potential due to technical reasons, and limited support services, information exchange and cooperation. The European Commission has made a proposal to remedy these deficiencies, and the February plenary is due to vote on an agreement reached in trilogue on the proposal.

Matching skills and jobs in the European Union

05-01-2016

Skills mismatch (the discrepancy between workers' skills and labour market needs) is not only a problem encountered by jobseekers; it also affects employees working in positions below their levels of qualification or outside their fields of study, and concerns some groups of older workers that face difficulties in keeping their skills up to date. According to studies, various solutions include adapting education and training more closely to labour market needs; providing flexible arrangements and ...

Skills mismatch (the discrepancy between workers' skills and labour market needs) is not only a problem encountered by jobseekers; it also affects employees working in positions below their levels of qualification or outside their fields of study, and concerns some groups of older workers that face difficulties in keeping their skills up to date. According to studies, various solutions include adapting education and training more closely to labour market needs; providing flexible arrangements and appropriate facilities at the workplace; and enhancing labour mobility and lifelong learning. In order to better understand skills mismatch, the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (Cedefop) carried out in 2014 the first pan-European skills survey, the initial results of which were published in October 2015. The European Union (EU) is dealing with the issue of skills mismatch in different ways, particularly by making recommendations to national and/or local authorities responsible for labour markets or for the content of education and training; enhancing the mobility of workers, for example through deepening international cooperation; implementing Community instruments such as the job search platform EURES; and facilitating the matching of skills and jobs through EU funding.

Green jobs on the labour market

29-06-2015

'Greening' of jobs and creating 'green jobs' are considered to have significant potential to boost the labour market, as this can help achieve sustainable development and economic goals, and create decent work. They are thus among the priorities of the EU's Agenda for new skills and jobs, within the Europe 2020 strategy.

European Employment Service: Implementation Appraisal

23-06-2015

In 2014, 3.1 per cent (around 8.1 million) of the European labour force was economically active in another Member State. In Annex I to its annual Work Program 2015 (CWP 2015), the European Commission announced that in order to enhance a deeper and fairer internal market with a strengthened industrial base it will submit the Labour Mobility package. While aiming at supporting labour mobility, this package tackles three substantial issues: 1) A better coordination of social security systems, 2) A ...

In 2014, 3.1 per cent (around 8.1 million) of the European labour force was economically active in another Member State. In Annex I to its annual Work Program 2015 (CWP 2015), the European Commission announced that in order to enhance a deeper and fairer internal market with a strengthened industrial base it will submit the Labour Mobility package. While aiming at supporting labour mobility, this package tackles three substantial issues: 1) A better coordination of social security systems, 2) A review of the Posting of Workers Directive and 3) An enhanced EURES (European Employment Services). This implementation appraisal focuses on the third theme of the expected Labour Mobility Package - EURES. In particular, it concentrates on legal acts in the field of labour mobility connected with EURES, especially, Regulation 492/2011 and Commission Implementing Decision 2012/733. 'Implementation Appraisals' aim to provide a succinct overview of material publicly available on the implementation, application and effectiveness of an EU law to date - drawing on available inputs from, inter alia, the EU institutions and advisory committees, national parliaments, and relevant external consultation and outreach exercises. They are provided to assist parliamentary committees in their consideration of the new Commission proposal, once tabled.

Public employment services in the EU: Facilitating mobility and employment

23-03-2014

Since the beginning of the financial and economic crisis, high rates of unemployment have been one of the most pressing problems of Member States in the European Union (EU).

They can contribute to reaching the Europe 2020 employment target and to implementation of the ...
