European network of Public Employment Services

The European network of Public Employment Services was established following a Decision by the Council and the European Parliament to maximise efficiency of public employment services (PES).

The network comprises all 28 EU countries, Norway, Iceland and the European Commission. It aims to:

  • compare PES performance through benchmarking
  • identify evidence-based good practices and foster mutual learning
  • promote the modernisation and strenghtening of PES service delivery, including of the Youth Guarantee
  • prepare inputs to the European Employment Strategy and the corresponding national labour market policies

The network is governed by a Board, where each Member State and the Commission are represented by two members. The Board meets twice a year to conduct strategic discussions and take decisions on the activities of the Network.
