3 July 2007: Foundation of the non-profit organization SYNERJOB

The Belgian public services for employment and vocational training establish the SYNERJOB vzw. The non-profit association provides a clear added value in adapting to the evolutions in the labor market.

The Board of Directors consists of the senior officials of the members of SYNERJOB. It meets several times a year to discuss new projects, to support the current actions and to monitor the progress of the working groups to whom it entrusts specific themes such as the Youth Guarantee or the Sixth State Reform.

On July 1, 2016, Forem will succeed VDAB as chairman of the non-profit organization SYNERJOB. A permanent secretariat manages the interaction between members of SYNERJOB.
