11th WAPES World Congress: The Public employment services in the context of the sustainable development and in the digital era


The Public employment services in the context of the sustainable development and in the digital era
 
Le World of work quickly evolves, and the impact of the digitalisation increases year by year. Most of the professions are getting automated and new professions are built up because of the digitalization. The 11th World Congress of the Association of Public employment services (WAPES) will show how Public employment services propose to meet the challenge of digitalization, thanks to an active participation of 300 decision makers, digital experts et superior managers in the labour world.
 
The Public employment services have to plunge into digitalisation to give to researchers of employment the digital tools that will allow them to find a place on the labour market. Even if we still do not know the digital world of work of tomorrow, Public services can, however, anticipate the automation of certain professions and envisage the disappearance of others which will lead to the re-employment of workers. On one hand, they have to lead a reflexive approach as for the impact of the digital technology to offer services in a digitized framework and, on the other hand, they have to "alphabetize" or teach workers and job-seekers digitally, offer them e-learning and accompany them in innovative initiatives such, among others, as the e-entrepreneurship.
 

The 11th WAPES World Congress will be built around five themes:

 
  • The impact of the digital on the employment
  • The entrepreneurship and the creation of activities in the digital era
  • The digital in the service offer of Public employment services
  • The e-learning and the improvement of employability
  • The digital ability, a skill to survive in a digital world
 
The conference is co-organized by WAPES and the ANAPEC (Moroccan Public employment service), one of its members. Some international organizations, in particular ILO, participate actively in the Congress.
