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.
