The Indicators Group (IG) of the Employment Committee was set up in 2000 to:

  • develop  indicators and methodologies to monitor countries’ progress in implementing the European Employment Strategy and Council Recommendations on labour market issues
  • support the surveillance and stock taking capacities of EMCO through the monitoring, description, and analysis of relevant policy issues.
  • work with the Commission on benchmarking proposals and on the Joint Assessment Framework in order to contribute to the analysis underpinning work on the European Semester 


The IG:

  • is composed of national experts in the fields of employment and labour market indicators from each EU country and the European Commission
  • is supported by the Commission’s policy analysts and statisticians.
  • draws on relevant work by International Organisations and academic expertise, studies and specific contributions.

The IG Bureau includes: Maria MOUNTAKI (IG Chair), the Secretariat and Commission representative(s).

The IG Secretariat is provided by the Commission. The current Secretary is Georgios Papanagnou.
