The European employment strategy seeks to create more and better jobs throughout the EU. It takes its inspiration from the Europe 2020 growth strategy.

The European employment strategy provides a framework (the "open method of coordination") for EU countries to share information, discuss and coordinate their employment policies.

It is based in the annual growth survey (AGS), which sets out the EU's priorities for the coming year to boost growth and job creation and opens the yearly European semester, which promotes closer coordination by national governments of their economic and fiscal policies.
