EC Action on tackling labour and skills shortages

Earlier in March, the Commission presented an action plan addressing labour and skills shortages. The action plan is part of the EU’s strategy to boost its competitiveness and enhance its economic and social resilience and a response to the steady increases seen in all Member States in the past 10 years in labour and skills shortages.

The plan sets out actions in five areas to be implemented swiftly at the EU, national, and social partners level:

  • Supporting the activation of underrepresented people in the labour market
  • Providing support for skills development, training and education
  • Improving working conditions in certain sectors
  • Improving fair intra-EU mobility for workers and learners
  • Attracting talent from outside the EU

The Action Plan proposes to work together with Member States and social partners. More details can be found in the EC Press Release
