RCC’s ESAP 2 project organized the 4th peer visit of representatives of Public Employment Services (PESs) from Western Balkan economies to the PES in Prishtina
Prishtina – Fourth peer visit of the Public Employment Services (PESs) from the Western Balkan (WB) economies within 2022 PES bench-learning exercise, organized by the Regional Cooperation Council’s (RCC) Employment and Social Affairs Platform 2 Project (ESAP 2), was held in Prishtina, 30 June – 1 July 2022.
Following the pattern of the previous peer visits, this two-day working visit, hosted by the Prishtina PES, gathered PES representatives from WB economies. The visit’s hosts expressed satisfaction with the entire process, thanking the RCC’s ESAP 2 project for the opportunity to connect with their peers from the region but also to self-assess their performance and exchange good and bad practices with other WB PES, gaining insight into potential opportunities to enhance their own operations.

The idea behind the WB PES bench-learning cycle is to bring together the expertise of different PESs in the WB and the EU PES, on the basis of the EU-PES bench-learning model, with the goal to exchange experiences and enhance operations of PES.
The PES bench-learning exercise is conducted in multi-annual cycles, and the 2022 cycle is organized by the Regional Cooperation Council’s (RCC) Employment and Social Affairs Platform 2 (ESAP 2) project. This cycle builds on the achievements of the previous cycle conducted by the ESAP 2 predecessor project. This round of bench-learning in Western Balkans, guided by experts from the EU, is developed as a systematic approach, combining performance comparison and mutual learning activities, aimed at continuous performance enhancement of PES towards better service delivery.
