The Peer Review showcased the use of the Human Capital Survey (BKL – Bilans Kapitału Ludzkiego) as a tool for monitoring skills needs in Poland. According to this Survey around eight out of ten enterprises in Poland claim that they find difficulties to meet their skill needs despite significant unemployment. The Polish Agency for Enterprise Development together with companies, individuals and training institutions monitors labour market needs to tackle this challenge.

The event focused on the different methods used by the Member States to monitor the demand and supply of skills and to exchange effective practices on the advantages and disadvantages of different approaches.
