Labour market shortages

This study, provided by Policy Department A to the Committee on Employment and Social Affairs, gives an overview of labour shortages, looking at their types and causes, their occurrence within the EU-28 and possible measures to counter them. It finds that there are no overall quantitative shortages at EU-28 level in the wake of the economic crisis, but qualitative shortages, especially relating to skills shortages and mismatch, occur in several regions, sectors, occupations and Member States. Employers and Member States are the prime actors to counter labour shortages effectively, but the EU can play an important supporting role through its influence on intra-EU mobility, by increasing the transparency of the labour market and by using its structural funds as supportive frameworks.

The Rapporteur writes about the multidimensional nature of poverty and formulates recommendations to tackle the social inequalities. Among other points raised, the draft report considers that the mid-term review of the multiannual financial framework is an opportunity to increase appropriations from the European Social Fund and the Food Aid Program for the most disadvantaged.

Social Entrepreneurship and Social Innovation

During the crisis, social enterprises have shown to be remarkably resilient, both in terms of economic outcomes and in maintaining and creating employment. Relatedly, social innovation seeks to improve and modernise the matching of skills and needs of employees and the needs of the workplace so as to simultaneously increase productivity and job satisfaction. The draft report of Verónica Lope Fontagné (EPP, ES), considered during the meeting on 7 May, examines how social enterprises and social innovation can contribute to creating the jobs the European Union urgently needs.
