Staff Networking Policy Project
The increasing "Europeanisation“ of economic and social developments in Europe means that the trade unions are increasingly faced with the need to develop a European profile, inter alia, in connection with the recruitment and training of their staff. At its last Congress in Prague, in 2003, the EMF set itself the task of initiating a project to activate networking with regard to staffing policy at European level.
This led to the setting up of an EMF "Staff Networking Project“ Work Group, which has had a number of meetings over the last 18 months and has focussed primarily on the exchange of staffing and organisational development concepts, including, in particular:
- Continuing training for trade union officers
- The development of the new generation
- Language course concepts
- The “Europeanisation” of personnel (HR) work
- Development of union membership
The Work Group has also looked at the question of how to expand the hitherto lukewarm efforts to develop a European staff exchange programme between sister organisations.
