In Luxembourg, the Fit4Commerce project is studying workers’ needs

On 23 January, the Luxembourg Minister for Work and Employment, Nicolas Schmit, launched the Fit4Commerce ESF project to improve the entry of job-seekers into commercial professions. Building on the success of the earlier Fit4Financial-Markets and Fit4Civil-Engineering projects, this new initiative targets a sector which has 46 000 employees and is showing rapid growth. “The aim is to better understand the needs of workers in this sector so that we can improve their employability,” explained the minister, who stressed the focused nature of the project as a key to success.
