Labour intends that companies communicate their vacancies to SEPE to create a large employment portal.

Leaving behind the SEPE and moving towards the new “State Employment Agency”. The Government has given the green light this Friday to the Employment Bill, which aims to follow this path of modernization of public employment services to improve their efficiency. To this end, one of the measures to be regulated is the obligation of companies to inform the future public agency of all their job vacancies, explain sources from the Ministry of Labour, with the aim of really knowing the state of the labour market and get closer to the opportunities for insertion.

“The public employment services are no longer intended only for the unemployed and are designed for society as a whole. Companies are going to be part of the system,” said the Vice President and Minister of Labour, Yolanda Diaz, after the Council of Ministers. The idea of Labour is to guarantee the labour insertion of unemployed people, but that public services are also a useful tool for companies and people with jobs who want to change jobs or requalify their skills for their professional future, said Diaz.

Another key element, said the vice-president, will be the transparency and evaluation of policies, with an annual audit that will be able to identify successful initiatives and those that fail or have problems in order to correct them.

A large portal with all the job offers

The future law and the new State Employment Agency aim to make public services more effective in the labour insertion of people who are unemployed or who want to change to a new job. One of the maxims of the Executive is that the new agency offers a real reflection of job opportunities to citizens, with a “large information portal” with all existing vacancies, whether public or private offers.

To do this, it is intended to regulate the regulatory obligation of companies to communicate all their vacancies to the future SEPE. “Companies and any administration are going to have to communicate the job offers they have so that, with a simple visualization, we can know which offers are being offered in real time throughout the country,” said Yolanda Díaz.

The communication of vacancies is not intended to force companies to recruit their staff through the public employment service, they say in the Ministry of Labour, but that the information of these vacancies have the citizen to address them and the Administration itself to design their training policies and guidance.

For example, if the Employment Agency detects a multitude of job vacancies in a certain occupation, even if companies are hiring through their own teams or private placement companies, the future SEPE can redirect job seekers to these vacancies or detect training needs for courses that offer more employment opportunities.

Digitalization, artificial intelligence and more staff

Other challenges for the future agency include solving SEPE’s problems. Some are well known in the street, by citizens using the service, as its old computer system and its digitization problems. Labor sources explain that one of the priority steps in the renewal of the SEPE will be the modernization of its computer system, for which they will allocate “150 million” euros of European funds. “In the coming weeks,” they point out, it is intended to put out to tender a tender for the concession of this technological renovation.

The modernization of its computer and technological systems will also pay special attention to the massive cross-referencing of data and the use of artificial intelligence to guide public services in the offers they provide to citizens and in the training they offer them. The goal is that staff make available to citizens options that “are working”, indicate in Labour. Courses with more professional outlets, direct people to sectors that are creating more jobs, see the itineraries with more placements, etc.

On the risks of bias and possible discrimination in the use of algorithms, from the Ministry of Labour ensure that the “transparency” will be a pillar of the new agency and policies.The Ministry of Labour has acknowledged that the idea is to “profile services rather than people”. Given the problems recorded with some algorithms that come to discriminate by sex, race or origin of citizens, recognize in the Ministry, the idea of Labour is “profiling services rather than people.

The increase in SEPE staff is another ongoing complaint of the staff of the agency, but also of citizens who fail to contact anyone on the other end of their phone lines or just get appointments for face-to-face care. The Ministry of Labour argues that next year there is a “commitment of very important incorporations”, although it does not yet specify the figures in this regard.

Tutors and “guaranteed services

Sufficient and trained staff is key to one of the commitments of the draft law in the face of citizenship: the promise -so often launched and never materialized- of a more personalized attention to job seekers, with itineraries focused on their needs and guidance to help them find a job.

Again, the Executive reiterates that a large number of tutors will be brought together to monitor job seekers. Not all of them, they recognize in Labour, but they have committed to the EU a network of about 7,000 counselors to guide about a million people.

The coalition government insists that this time there is the determination and a large amount of funds (thanks to Europe) to make these recurring promises a reality. Moving from rhetoric to concrete commitments, it has designed a “common portfolio of guaranteed services” for citizens. This involves a list of “eleven rights” that public services must offer to the population, including at least one “adequate job offer” per year to avoid chronifying a situation of unemployment into long-term unemployment (more than twelve months). In any case, it is intended to acquire the commitment to provide some offer before six months and, if not done, that the future SEPE must argue the cause.

New initiatives are also proposed, such as offering business viability plans to people who start up their own business in order to avoid the failure of many “entrepreneurial” projects in the past.

The Council of Ministers has today taken only the first step in order tofor the future Employment Law to reach the Official State Gazette (BOE). Now it must be negotiated with social partners, administrations, return to the Council of Ministers and finally get the necessary parliamentary support. But the Government has already started the machinery with the approval of the Draft Bill before the end of the year, as it had committed to Brussels within the Recovery Plan. The legislation is due to come into force at the end of 2022 and its deployment is planned for 2023. The complete change in the model will probably come in 2024.
