(21 January 2016) – This year’s review reveals further positive employment and social developments in the EU.
The Employment and Social Developments in Europe (ESDE) review is an annual review of the latest employment and social trends, reflecting on upcoming challenges and possible policy responses.
Despite recent improvements, huge disparities still exist between Member States, in terms of economic growth, employment and other key social and labour market indicators. Many of these disparities are linked to an underutilisation of human capital on several fronts.
The 2015 ESDE report looks at ways of tackling these disparities, focusing in particular on job creation, labour market efficiency, social protection modernisation and investment in people.
