“Breaking news from European PES: Challenges we face in 2015”

30.09.2015 to 01.10.2015

 

The European meeting for European members will take place on Thursday afternoon 1st.

 

The workshop will focus on 4 topics that are at the heart of the current concerns of the Public Employment Services.

A challenge for the PES in a labour market in constant evolution is to adapt to the changes. These changes are part of our landscape and impact most of the missions the PES are responsible for. In this context, finding inspiration from other peers and learning from their experience is a valuable asset.

 

The objective is to share a concrete and transparent overview on the latest issues the European PES will need to focus on, through interactive and operation-oriented speed meetings.
