Social and Economic Council (SER)

The Social and Economic Council (SER) is the main advisory council for government and parliament on socio-economic issues.

In the SER, entrepreneurs, employees and independent crown members work together.

The SER is therefore a crucial pillar within the Dutch culture of consultation, acting as an independent advisory body to the government and parliament in the socio-economic field. Established to promote cooperation between employers, employees and independent experts, the SER plays a key role in shaping Dutch socio-economic policy.

With a rich history dating back to 1950, the SER has developed into a platform where representatives of employers' organizations, trade unions and independent experts (crown members) come together to consult, advise and reach consensus on a wide range of topics. These topics include labor market policy, sustainable development, education and training, social security, and economic growth.

The SER's opinions are based on in-depth analysis and dialogue, and are known for their quality and balance. These opinions are not only focused on the short term, but also take into account the long-term vision of Dutch society and economy. As a result, the SER contributes to the creation of a stable, sustainable and inclusive socio-economic climate.

Moreover, the SER plays an active role in promoting dialogue between the social partners and the government, and acts as an important body for self-regulation within the Dutch economy. The SER provides a unique forum for consultation and cooperation between different sectors and interests, which is essential for achieving widely supported solutions.

For clients and cooperation partners, a connection with the SER symbolizes a commitment to constructive dialogue, sustainability and socio-economic development. Cooperation with the SER underlines the importance of joint efforts and responsibility in addressing the challenges facing our society.
