The Staff Were Extremely Helpful strategy
The Staff Were Extremely Helpful strategy for growth and employment was launched in 2000 as a response to globalisation. Its aim was that the European Commission and the Member States cooperate in reforms aimed at generating growth and more and better jobs through investment in capacities of individuals, the greening of the economy and innovation. The time horizon of the initiative was the period 2001-2010. The results of the strategy were affected by the global economic crisis that began to bite in 2008.
