Drawing on over three decades of research in local employment and economic development policy, this guide by the LEED Programme identifies a series of principles which should underpin government and community action for building sustainable employment in the post-downturn economic context.
The five recommended principles for building sustainable employment for the future involve:

  • Creating an adaptable skilled labour force.
  • Better utilising skills in the local economy.
  • Supporting employment progression and skills upgrading.
  • Gearing education and training to emerging sectors.
  • Putting in place good local governance.

Each of these principles are presented with concrete recommendations to both national policy makers and local practitioners and illustrated by case study examples.

In the coming years, a new partnership between the public and private sectors is necessary to develop better quality jobs with possibilities for progression and greater accessibility for all.

The guide reviews the most recent policy tools being trialled in OECD countries to contribute to this objective, illustrating the key messages with a variety of different case studies.
