As of September 21st, the trade organisation representing the employment industry at European level is rebranded as the World Employment Confederation-Europe. Speaking for labour market enablers across 29 European countries and 7 of the largest international companies, it brings unique access to and engagement with international policymakers (EU Commission, European Parliament, Council) and other stakeholders (employers organisations, trade unions, academic world, think tanks, NGOs).
Eurociett decided to re-brand to reflect the industry’s extended territory (the world of employment) and its leadership in an environment that is rapidly changing. While Eurociett was established in 2004 to represent temporary agency work, the World Employment Confederation is the trade body representing the employment industry at European level. “We felt the need to have a new name and brand which better capture the changes taking place in the world of work and the enhanced role played by the employment industry in achieving better functioning labour markets” said Denis Pennel, Managing Director.
The World Employment Confederation-Europe strives for recognition for the economic and social role played by the employment industry in enabling work, adaptation, security and prosperity in society. Its members provide access to the labour market and meaningful work to more than 11.6 million people in Europe and serve around 1.5 million organisations on a yearly basis.
