On 22 May, the European Commission presented the 2017 country-specific recommendations, which form part of the annual European Semester process for labour market reforms. Through the recommendations, the EU Commission aims to provide guidance to EU Member States to reach better functioning and more inclusive labour markets.
World Employment Confederation-Europe Managing Director Denis Pennel commented: “We welcome the Commission’s ongoing push for labour market reform across the EU. Such reform is essential in order to unlock the potential of the employment industry and boost job creation. Appropriately regulated, the employment industry offers four key enabling functions, enabling work, adaptation, security and prosperity.”
