Attica Regional Governor Yiannis Sgouros has announced the development and implementation of a one-year program which will see the placement of 1,500 employees in subsidized positions at companies operating in Attica. The program’s budget is set at about 10 million euros.

According to Sgouros the program will resemble similar programs developed by the Manpower Organization (OAED).

The beneficiaries will be companies located in the Attica region.
