Towards a job-rich recovery The Employment package

With EU unemployment hitting record levels and forecasts of a grim economic outlook for the months ahead, the Commission has just published a communication with a set of concrete measures to boost jobs.

The proposal focuses on the demand-side of job creation, setting out  for Member States to encourage hiring by reducing taxes on labour or supporting business start-ups more.

It also identifies the areas with the biggest job potential for the future: the green economy, health services and ICT.

The policy communication underlines the need for a stronger employment and social dimension to EU governance and lays down ways to involve employers' and workers' representatives more in setting EU priorities.

Cedefop's work is referred.
