The European Rental Association (ERA) has officially joined the EU Pact for Skills, a crucial step forward in our strategic objective to address skill shortages within the rental industry.

The Pact for Skills is one of the flagship actions of the European Skills Agenda, which brings together different stakeholders to promote and develop skills in various sectors and is part of the EU’s efforts to address skills gaps and enhance employability across Europe.

This initiative is all about creating a skilled and adaptable workforce that can respond effectively to the changing needs of our industry.

By collaborating with industry leaders, educational institutions and other stakeholders, the Pact for Skills aims to provide a platform for the development and recognition of skills that are essential in today’s job market.

What it means for ERA

As well as supporting ERA’s strategic objectives, joining the Pact for Skills is in perfect alignment with our ongoing project on attracting and retaining people in the industry, which will identify attraction and retention issues and outline concrete solutions for addressing them.

Joining the Pact for Skills underscores our commitment to advancing skills and knowledge within our industry. It presents us with exciting opportunities to work alongside other leaders and stakeholders who share our vision.

Together, we can shape the future of skills in our sector and make a significant impact.
