The concept of young people not in employment, education or training (NEETs) has been widely used as a tool to inform youth policies in Europe since 2010, and has had a significant impact. For the first time this report delves deeper into the NEET phenomenon to look at the diversity of young people represented; how long they have been unemployed, whether they have family responsibilities, and whether they suffer from disability or illness, along with other factors. It reveals that the situation of NEETs can vary significantly in Europe, and that targeted measures are needed to help the most vulnerable. Read more: http://bit.ly/NEETDiversity

What do Europeans do at work? Find out in the new 'A task-based analysis: European Jobs Monitor 2016' report published today.

Europe continues its recovery from the economic slump caused by the global financial crisis in 2008, exacerbated by the euro zone single currency crisis in 2010–2011. In 2014–2015, aggregate employment levels rose faster than at any time since 2008 and over four million new jobs were created in the 28 EU Member States.

The fifth annual European Jobs Monitor report looks at employment shifts at Member State and aggregate EU level from the second quarter of 2011 to the second quarter of 2015.

The effective functioning of Europe’s social market economy necessitates a reaffirmation of the value of collective bargaining.

Evidence from Eurofound identifies two paths along which collective bargaining is evolving.

1. One where collective bargaining is narrowing to a mechanism for setting wages within a corridor determined by firm performance, competitiveness and productivity.

2. One where collective bargaining encompasses social integration, equality and fairness, and influences employment and working conditions, as well contributing to income and wealth distribution in society more broadly.
