Smart tripartite cooperation

#social dialogue
The project contributes not only to the improvement of social dialogue, but also to the development and strengthening of the effectiveness of structures and processes of labour relations in Slovakia. At the same time, the evaluation index of the Program Statement of the Government of the Slovak Republic comprehensively points to the importance of social dialogue for the general public, which will be regularly informed about priorities, intersections of public policies and current requirements of entrepreneurs.

Promoting the quality of social dialogue

#social dialogue
The aim of the project is to create space for the professionalization of social dialogue with the potential to streamline and improve the process of preparing legislation at the tripartite level, but also to focus on the content of assessing legislation in the context of increasing Slovakia's competitiveness as well as the extent of social support for the creation of expert documents and training. The aim is also to support the provision of quality and professional responses to the ever-changing labor market situation and to develop more targeted measures to improve the ability of public employment services to provide timely and personalized employment care, based on human resources quality, labor market links, better cooperation with private employment institutions and social dialogue aimed at developing higher employment rate.

Joint declaration of employers in support of vaccination

We, the employers who create job opportunities throughout Slovakia, express our full support to the health professionals in the hospitals in the covid wards. We highly value their extremely demanding work and continuous commitment in difficult conditions in order to save the health and lives of many of our colleagues.

Qualification verification system

#education
The needs of employers and the supply of employees in the labor market, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, but also the opening up of lifelong learning opportunities have created a demand for more flexible acquisition of qualifications, based on non-formal learning. Professional employment and human development are often hampered not only by a lack of knowledge, skills and competences, but by a lack of evidence of their acquisition. The national project System of Verification of Qualifications in the Slovak Republic (NP SOK), implemented by the State Institute of Vocational Training (ŠIOV) is intended for those people who are interested in having their knowledge, skills and competences acquired through non-formal education, that is during practice or informal learning. Thanks to the proof, they can obtain a full certificate of qualification without going back to school.

An event that finally provokes a response: the debate on higher education reform is advancing, employers are making concrete proposals to improve the quality of higher education

The amendment to the Act on Higher Education (Colleges and Universities), introduced by the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sports (MŠVVaŠ) SR, triggered an avalanche of emotions on the part of academia and finally activated a society-wide debate on and job-ready graduates. While the academic community has been focusing on petitions and organizing protests against the proposed changes in recent weeks, employers and associations in the National Union of Employers (NUE) want to contribute constructively to the discussion - they are coming up with concrete proposals on how to move Slovak higher education forward and bring it closer to the quality level of advanced countries.

WorkTransitionCEE

#digitalization
What will happen to the millions of European citizens affected by both automation and the COVID-19 crisis in the following years and what skills we need to develop to keep pace with a constantly changing world of work are questions that WorkTransitionCEE project will try to find answers for – a project co-financed by the European Union that brings together six representative social partners from Central and Eastern Europe.

Employers are demanding more effective tools for controlling employees

Employers of the NUE demand more effective tools to control the vaccination of their employees. Companies also lack an evaluation of the anti-pandemic measures from the first two waves of the pandemic and, on that basis, a comprehensive strategy to combat the pandemic.
