What is R4E?

In 2020, the European Round Table for Industry (ERT), which brings together CEOs and Chairs of around 60 of the largest European companies, launched Reskilling 4 Employment (R4E).

The goal of this pan-European programme is to help provide reskilling opportunities to unemployed and ‘at-risk’ workers, so they can find employment in new occupations.

What we aim to achieve:

Contribute to the strengthening of companies’ human capital and economic recovery

Promote social inclusion and a solution for the challenges posed by the digital and climatic transitions


Through PRO_MOV, R4E follows participants all the way from application to their first months at work. The program helps people to choose the best programme for them, organizing visits to get them to know their future workplace, and helping them prepare for job interviews. In addition, it provides participants with mentorship support, which will be available at every step of the training and will help participants adapting to their new job.
