Online launch event
Where are the shortages, where are the workers?
The drivers behind labour shortages in Europe and how to tackle them
This is the hot topic at the centre of two reports, to be launched on 29 March 2023 in Brussels, in a joint event of The European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions (Eurofound) and the European Labour Authority (ELA).
During the event, which you can follow online, the European agencies will present two recent publications: ‘Measures to tackle labour shortages: Lessons for future policy’, by Eurofound, and the ‘EURES Report on labour shortages and surpluses 2022’, by ELA.
Both agencies’ Executive Directors, Cosmin Boiangiu, from ELA, and Ivailo Kalfin, from Eurofound, will open the event, which will be attended by representatives of national administrations, social partners and EU institutions. Various panels will discuss experiences and the impact of shortages and surpluses on workers and employers, practical examples of policy interventions and future-oriented strategies.
