Did you know how the Adecco Group contributes to the integration of refugees in the labour market?
According to the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), the number of people displaced globally by conflict has reached a staggering high of 60 Million. These asylum seekers had to leave their lives behind – and start anew.
In 21 EU member states, an asylum seeker has to wait six months or longer before being allowed to work. These long waiting times translate into delayed integration into society.
On EU average, it takes between five and six years to integrate more than 50% of humanitarian migrants into the labour market and as much as 15 years to reach a 70% employment rate.
Refugees have a high risk of being unemployed, and if they are working, they usually work below their level of qualification.
The Adecco Group wants to contribute to the labour market integration of refugees. An online campaign has been developed to attest how the group helps to provide jobs and job training for those in need.
In close relation with the communication team of the Adecco Group, Page in extremis has developed a micro-site completed with a set of teasers to diffuse on the social media.
The Adecco Group wants to match talented people with the job opportunities and employers they’re looking for. On any given day, they connect over 700,000 people across 60 countries with fulfilling opportunities that make the most of their skills now and enable them to develop new expertise for the future.

What happened to European children in 2016?
You will find the answers is in the new Eurochild Annual Report.
Eurochild is a network of organisations working with and for children throughout Europe, striving for a society that respects the rights of children.
The work of Eurochild is underpinned by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), the most signed international human rights treaty that grants all children and young people a comprehensive set of rights.
The new Annual Report of the organisation highlights the fact that if progress towards the full realisation of children’s rights in Europe suffered several setbacks, 2016 also brought significant positive developments.
Two examples: (1) the Council of Europe adopted a 6-year ambitious children’s rights strategy with high-level political commitment from many of its 47 member states; (2) the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child issued two new General Comments giving guidance to governments on public spending for the realisation of children’s rights, and implementation of children’s rights during adolescence.
In 2016, Eurochild welcomed 17 new members after a vote by the General Assembly. Eurochild has a total of 178 members, from 33 countries, including organisations and individuals working to promote children’s rights in Europe.
Page in extremis is proud to have participated in the creative development and the graphical production of the annual report.

Since 1994, the broad experience of the Belgian communication agency has been extended to more than four hundred annual reports.

The yearly Economic Report of the World Employment Confederation has just been released!
The year-long research conducted by the World Employment Confederation in 50 countries addresses the challenges of a changing world of work and illustrates the role of the employment industry in enabling work, adaptation, security and prosperity.
50 million people globally accessed the labour market via an employment agency in 2015
Regarding penetration rate, agency work represents a limited part of the global working population averaging just 1.7%. The USA leads the field at 2.2%, followed by Japan (2%) and Europe (1.9%).
The highest-placed European country is France in 5th place with 2 million hires.
Across the markets covered in the report, current trends show a diversification of the employment industry.
Employment agencies also guided some 3 million individuals through their career management or job search, and they enabled adaptation by closing skills gaps and placing unemployed youth in work.
Following Denis Pennel, Managing Director at the World Employment Confederation, numbers show two things: “first, agencies provide both an entry point to the labour market and a stepping stone to permanent hiring. Second, the industry creates decent jobs that would otherwise not exist. In India for instance, 92% of companies would not make permanent hires if agency work was not available”.
Finally, the report points that the employment industry reduces frictional unemployment and has an impact on public budgets.
The Communication Agency, Page in extremis is proud to have participated in the creative development and the graphical production of the report. The result is a comprehensive publication made within an intimate creative dialogue framework involving the Belgian communication agency’s creative team, and the World Employment Confederation.
An online version of the publication is on the road and will be soon published.
