Association of Lithuanian Employment Agencies (ALEA) is the first and only institution in Lithuania uniting temporary employment practitioners. The Association (originally called the Association of Temporary Employment Agencies) was established in April 2007, initiated by 7 companies working in this field. The current name – Association of Lithuanian Employment Agencies – was changed from the old one in 2011.
Currently, the association brings together companies whose main areas of activity are personnel selection, search and “leasing” employees to employers in need of workers.
We are committed to increase public awareness of temporary employment as a form of a job, employment services and activities of recruitment agencies. We also help our members build reliable and responsible businesses. We provide our members with legal clarifications, guidance and consultations.
As an Association, together we actively contribute to creating a legal framework for employee leasing, a transparent labour market in this field and encourage market participants to use temporary employment services to reduce emigration and illegal employment in the country.
ALEA has been a member of the Lithuanian Employers Confederation LDKsince 2007. This membership and cooperation are very important for us in order to represent the interests of our members as efficiently as possible, to participate in the development of the legal framework and to make proposals. It makes our voice better heard and the opportunities to improve the business environment much greater.
We also develop international cooperation which enables us to share our best practices with our foreign partners and learn from theirs. ALEA has been a member of the World Employment Confederation WEC since 2010. The Association signed a cooperation agreement with the associations of Latvian LPDAA and Estonian EPREL temporary employment agencies in 2011. The aim of this cooperation is to jointly promote temporary employment services and to participate in the development of the countries’ legal frameworks.
