Labour Min Vroutsis presents plans for transition to digital age

Labour and Social Affairs Minister Yiannis Vroutsis outlined the characteristics of the transition to a new and digital age in a briefing on Tuesday.

As he said, it is now possible to plan specialised and targeted policies that can reduce administrative and operational costs while increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of the planned actions.
The ministry is moving digital transformation a step further, not only at national, but also at European level, by integrating modern business intelligence systems – cutting-edge technology – into the Diagnosis Mechanism for the collective and creative exploitation of labour market data and other actions, Vroutsis said.

He referred to the development of a new way of creating intelligent proposals for creative policies and actions, such as the ReBrain Greece initiative, which will be presented on December 9.
Among other things, the Minister of Labour referred to a digital method of allocating pensions, noting that on June 1, 2020, the first digital pensions will be issued in Greece.

“The aim of policies is to increase people’s employment and reduce unemployment, in terms of quality, better wages and full-time employment, in order to shape the future and show young people that they do not need to leave to go abroad,” Vroutsis stressed.
