- The European Commission proposed several new initiatives aimed at filling labor shortages throughout the European Union and to attract foreign nationals from countries outside of the EU
The European Commission proposed several new initiatives aimed at filling labor shortages throughout the European Union (EU) and attracting foreign nationals from countries outside of the EU. These proposed initiatives include the following:
- Introducing a new EU Talent Pool to match employers in the EU with jobseekers in third countries. Participation in the EU Talent Pool will be voluntary for Member States, who will support the management of the platform.
- Introducing a pass, known as a Talent Partnership Pass, that aims at developing the skills of third-country foreign nationals. The pass will make it easier for foreign nationals to prove their work skills and qualifications.
- Introducing a set of measures to simplify and speed up the recognition of skills and qualifications of third-country nationals.
What are the Changes?
The European Commission proposed new measures to attract foreign talent from countries outside the EU and fill labor shortages throughout the region. The European Parliament and the Council will now negotiate the Commission’s proposal for an EU Talent Pool.
