Community employment policies

The European Union’s work contributes to reducing rates of unemployment and improving the quality of jobs, in particular through the Lisbon Strategy for growth and jobs. In the context of the international financial crisis, additional measures have been taken to protect existing jobs and to create new opportunities.

Each year, more than EUR 10 billion are invested through the European Social Fund (ESF) to improve job prospects for the population. Projects, co-financed by Member States, support companies in adapting to developments in the economic and social situation. They promote access to lifelong learning and training in order to develop workers’ skills.
