Press conference by László Andor on reinforced cooperation between public employment services

14 views

On 17 June 2013, László Andor, Member of the EC in charge of Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, gave a press conference in Brussels on reinforced cooperation between public employment services. On the same date, the European Commission proposed a Decision to help public employment services to maximise their effectiveness through closer cooperation to better address the needs of the unemployed and businesses. Effective public employment services are essential for the practical implementation by Member States of employment policies, such as the Youth Guarantee. For example, public employment services are well placed to advise individual jobseekers on training, apprenticeship, traineeship and further education opportunities adapted to their situation and to employers' requirements. Moreover, public employment services also vital in ensuring a better match between jobseekers with particular skills and employers looking for these skills. The latest issue of the European Vacancy Monitor shows that despite record unemployment in Europe, 1.7 million vacancies remain unfilled in the EU. The proposed Decision would establish a platform for comparing the performance public employment services against relevant benchmarks, identifying best practices and fostering mutual learning. Public employment services have themselves indicated that with such a system in place, labour market problems could be detected earlier on.
