Active Labour Market Policies: Connecting People with Jobs

 

The objective of an effective activation policy is to give more people access to the labour force and good jobs. This requires:

  • Enhancing motivation and incentives to seek employment.
  • Improving job readiness and help in finding suitable employment.
  • Expanding employment opportunities.

The implementation of these key elements needs to be managed by effective and well-coordinated labour market and social institutions and policies. Continuous monitoring and evaluation of the impact of policies and programmes are necessary to strengthen policy effectiveness and efficiency in responding to the needs of different groups. The OECD is carrying out a range of activities to help countries strengthen their policies and make good-quality employment attainable for jobseekers and other groups outside of the labour force.
