Welcome to CAOP

Labour markets and labour relations have changed a lot over the past few years. The labour market continues to develop at a rapid rate. All organisations are affected, including those in the public sector. How do we solve the problem of shortages in the labour market? How do we deal with the increasing diversity and the ageing workforce? How are we influenced by legislation from Brussels?

These questions will be answered for you by CAOP. CAOP advises and supports more than two hundred employers in various sectors, including the Dutch government and the education and health care sectors. CAOP is the largest knowledge and service centre with regards to the labour market and labour relations within the public domain.

CAOP as a source of information

Constant developments in the labour market and the ever changing nature of labour relations require an insight into the trends and evolutions pertaining to labour. Whether in education, health care or government, labour-related issues are relevant to any organisation involved with the public domain. These issues include the diversity of the workforce, questions with regards to the recruitment and retention of various groups and methods of dealing with the demographic ageing of the workforce.CAOP initiates discussions on labour related issues. We share and implement information using best practices and other solutions. This is done independently and in conjunction with other parties, such as the Abeda and Ien Dales institutes. CAOP’s goal is the development, exchange and distribution of information to create a fully functional public domain.

 CAOP focuses on:

•Labour shortages
• Employment policy – according to life phase
• (Cultural) diversity
• Integrity
• Employee participation
• Social security
• Efficient modus operandi
• Employment in the public domain

CAOP does not concentrate exclusively on the Dutch labour market. Communicating Brussels’ legislation to our employers is important as more labour issues are being dealt with on a European level.
