Employment Week 2009: Europe´s Labour Market - ensuring growth through human capital
Datum: 24.06.2009 - 25.06.2009
Economic downturns are worrying times for everyone, particularly when unemployment is on the rise. It will take some time before markets begin to operate within normal conditions again. But we might like to remind ourselves that economic decline is part of a cycle, better times will return, and businesses and governments need to ensure that Europe is also prepared for the economic upturn.
The Employment Week 2009 programme will look at today?s challenges and opportunities:
First, looking at Europe?s human capital, the conference?s agenda will focus on skills development and evaluate how the European workforce is coping with change. Secondly, the programme will also present how the European labour market, more generally speaking, is responding to the current economic situation with respect to competitiveness, innovation and restructuring.
The conference sessions will introduce a line-up of speakers including political decision makers, business leaders, social partners, representatives of civil society, as well as many other experts who will come on stage to share their views and expert knowledge on today?s key employment issues. Each topic will be illustrated by concrete examples of good practice and innovative solutions.
