    Job Creation and Local Economic Development 2016

    This second edition of Job Creation and Local Economic Development examines how national and local actors can better work together to support economic development and job creation at the local level. It sheds light on a continuum of issues – from how skills policy can better meet the needs of local communities to how local actors can better engage employers in apprenticeships and improve the implementation of SME and entrepreneurship policy. It includes international comparisons that allow local areas to take stock of how they are performing in the marketplace for skills and jobs. It also includes a set of country profiles featuring, among other things, new data on skills supply and demand at the level of OECD sub-regions (TL3).

    SME and Entrepreneurship Policy in Israel 2016

    This report examines Israel’s performance in stimulating SMEs and entrepreneurship and makes recommendations for government policy. A dual economy has gradually emerged in Israel, in which high rates of successful technology-based entrepreneurship contrast with low average productivity and growth in traditional SMEs. Israel has excellent framework conditions and programmes for technology-based start-ups and SMEs in areas such as R&D, high-level skills generation and venture capital finance. These strengths need to be maintained. At the same time, more needs to be done to spread success to all types of SMEs and all groups of the Israeli population. This report recommends a range of new and expanded interventions for example in access to credit, broad innovation, workforce skills development, management support and entrepreneurship education. It recommends underpinning these actions with a national SME and entrepreneurship policy strategy and new arrangements for inter-ministerial co-ordination.

    Weaving Together Policies for Social Inclusion in Ireland

    Ireland has made considerable progress in rebounding from the crisis, but, like other OECD countries, continues to grapple with how to address lingering socio-economic impacts and ensure inclusive growth growing forward. Multi-faceted interventions, targeting disadvantaged populations and the places they live, can lead to more effective and inclusive policies. Ignoring the relationship between people and place will, in contrast, lead to further entrenched disadvantage. This report looks at some of the ways in which Ireland can build on an already comprehensive series of reforms to better weave together current policies and practices.

    La création d'entreprise inclusive - Recueil de bonnes pratiques

    Ce compendium comprend 20 études de cas issues de programmes publics au sein des pays européens qui soutiennent, avec succès, la création d'entreprises des personnes provenant de groupes défavorisés et sous-représentés dans le secteur de l’entrepreneuriat. Les populations visées par ces programmes comprennent les jeunes, les femmes, les personnes âgées, les chômeurs, les immigrants, les minorités ethniques et les personnes handicapées. Chaque description du programme détaille les activités et les approches du programme, évalue les difficultés rencontrées lors du développement et de la mise en œuvre, et offre des recommandations pour  d'autres transferts à d'autres environnements.

    Des actions de politique publique au niveau national, régional et local peuvent apporter une contribution importante à la croissance économique et l'inclusion sociale en favorisant la création d'entreprises et l'auto-emploi par les personnes qui, dans un autre contexte, pourraient rester à l’écart des sentiers battus de l’entrepreneuriat. Ce compendium démontre que des approches viables existent et peuvent aider les décideurs politiques à s'inspirer d'autres expériences pour obtenir des résultats à grande échelle.
