The European Rental Association (ERA) has joined the European Union Pact for Skills as it seeks to curb the ongoing skills shortages within the rental industry.
The EU pact 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 aims to create a skilled and adaptable workforce that can respond effectively to the changing needs of the 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,” the ERA says in a statement.
“In the dynamic landscape of the rental industry, skills and knowledge are the driving forces behind growth and success, and a highly skilled and adaptable workforce is essential for staying ahead.
“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.”
