PES Network Stakeholder Conference 2021: Registration now open!

Everything you always wanted to know about ‘the Power of PES Partnerships’ can be found at the online 2021 Stakeholder Conference of the European Network of Public Employment Services (PES Network), 20-22 April 2021!

Register today for the 2021 PES Network Stakeholder Conference: the Power of PES Partnerships, taking place online during three half-days. Choose between a variety of plenary sessions, panels or workshops:

  • Tuesday 20 April (09:30-14:00): Introducing the PES Partnership Ecosystem
  • Wednesday 21 April (09:30-13:30): Practical Partnership responses to COVID
  • Thursday 22 April (10:00-14:30): The Future Employment Service Ecosystem

With welcoming introductions from Nicolas Schmit, European Commissioner for Jobs and Social Rights and Johannes Kopf, Chair of the PES Network, the event will bring together representatives of Public Employment Services (PES) with other labour market actors to discuss the latest trends and practices in the effective use of partnership working by PES.

The event builds on recent activities of the PES Network on this theme, including a 2020 PES Network publication on PES Partnership Management, which highlighted how partnership working is an evolving component of PES delivery, stressing both the need for flexible approaches and involving clients in the design of services.

In this context, the 2021 Stakeholder Conference offers a perfect opportunity to reflect and discuss with labour market stakeholders on how effective partnerships can be built, what they look like today and what they might look like in the future. All with an eye on offering the best possible support to employers and jobseekers in the future.

Join the discussions - register now for the 2021 PES Network Stakeholder Conference! Registration closes on 15 April 2021.

Please note that the working language will be English, but that interpretation will be provided during plenary sessions in French, German, and Spanish.
