The project was conducted with the financial support of the Operational Program “Human Resources Development” funded by the European Social Fund of the European Union and the Republic of Bulgaria.
Contractor: Employment Agency’s Operational Program of “Human Resources Development”
Beneficiary: VES Ltd.
The project was initiated as of June 1, 2014. It was conducted together with the Employment Agency under the Operational Program of “Human Resources Development” (OP HRD). The main purpose of the project was to contribute to the development of the rural areas and increasing the productivity of the labor market thereof. VES Ltd. conducted this project in order to promote the geographical mobility of employees by providing them with workplace transportation. Therefore the Company aimed to increase the employment ratio and reduce the turn-overs at such remote premises. A general purpose of this project directly corresponds with the main objective of the OP HRD which is to “develop human resources in order to ensure higher employment, income and social integration”, which is totally in line with the overall objective of raising the productivity and adaptability of the employees.
Development and implementation of a project to promote the mobility of the workforce has a significant role in allowing more people to move more easily and in a more organized way to reach the workplace, which also helps maintaining the employees. According to the European Employment Strategy, reducing the imbalances in the labor market and implementing measures to promote labor and occupational mobility by removing obstacles to geographical and territorial mobility is a must. (Promotion of Employment Art. 57a.) In this regard, the project contributes to that strategy as well. This is not only important for the maintenance of the employees but also for promoting territorial mobility for them.
The target group of the project is the employees of the VES Ltd. and they will benefit from the transportation services by minimizing their travel time to and from the workplace; by improving access to employment options that are available for them; by saving from their travel expenses thru the use of such an organized transport; by reducing unemployment ratios, and the last but not the least, by improving the quality of life in the region.
Target group is composed of a total 25 employees.
Total amount dedicated for the project is 27 095.93 leva.
And the duration of the Project is 12 months.
