Early July 2010, the European Commission released the results of a Eurobarometer (European survey) dedicated to geographical and labour market mobility. Among the most interesting findings of the report are the followings:

  • 17% of Europeans envisage working abroad in the future, ranging from 51% in Denmark to just 4% in Italy;
  • 34% of Europeans rate the chance of finding a job abroad better than at home;
  • Unemployment is a key reason to move: 48% of Europeans would consider moving regions or countries for work should they lose their work.

On the same day, the European Commission presented a Communication entitled ‘Reaffirming free movement of workers: rights and major developments’. The objective of the document is to give a full picture of the rights that may claim EU migrant workers, taking into account legislative and case-law developments.

The European Commission launched on July 7th, a wide consultation aiming to gather the views of all stakeholders on the future of pensions systems in Europe. Designing EU pension rules is largely a responsibility of Member States.

Through this consultation, the European Commission does not question this competence but it recalls the scope of EU action in the field of pensions.

Commenting on the EC paper on pensions, Leonardo Sforza, head of EU Affairs and Research at Hewitt Associates and Chairman of the EChr scientific committee, said: “this Green Paper and its background documents represent the most comprehensive review made by the Commission on pensions for over a decade. In terms of method, it shows the inter-connection of different policy areas and the importance of an ever closer co-operation among different departments beyond administrative silos. On the substance of future policy direction, it can be instrumental in tackling unfulfilled business expectations on the simplification of cross-border pension arrangements. These gaps some of which could be immediately addressed by improving the transparency, predictability and coherence of statutory requirements ??? continue to undermine the effectiveness and credibility of the European Single Market.”

Leonardo Sforza continued: “The deployment of a more business-friendly regulatory environment for pensions is vital for employees and pensioners and for the competitiveness of the European system. In that respect, the employer’s perspective on the pensioners and for the competitiveness of the European system. In that respect, the employer’s perspective on the subject of costs and the affordability of pension promises merits much greater and thoughtful attention than is currently the case.”

A ‘Green Paper’ is generally a good opportunity for practicing democracy within the EU decision-making process. In particular, it offers all stakeholders beyond just EU bodies and institutional representatives an opportunity to share their views on the issues at stake as well as suggesting possible options for action based on their direct experience. In the context of pensions, such an approach is even more important before adopting new decisions or legislative proposals given the long-lasting impact they may have on people, organisations and individual Member States’ policy responsibilities in the area of retirement provision“.

-The 2013 conference agenda-

The European Club for Human Resources (ECHR) in partnership with Edenred, CSR Europe and the European Economic and Social Committee are pleased to invite you to the conference

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is more and more used to evaluate a company. CSR is usually linked to environmental matters and society and also deals with the respect of social norms and working conditions within companies. What may be the role of executive Human Resources (HR) in the vision and implementation of CSR?

The event aims at better understanding CSR, its application within companies including the role of the HR in this process, evolution of CSR and alternative approaches to evaluating CSR in a company.
