    Mental Health and Work: Austria

    Tackling mental ill-health of the working-age population is becoming a key issue for labour market and social policies in OECD countries. OECD governments increasingly recognise that policy has a major role to play in keeping people with mental ill-health in employment or bringing those outside of the labour market back to it, and in preventing mental illness. This report on Austria is the eighth in a series of reports looking at how the broader education, health, social and labour market policy challenges identified in Sick on the Job? Myths and Realities about Mental Health and Work (OECD, 2012) are being tackled in a number of OECD countries. It concludes that the Austrian system provides good opportunities in principle for improving labour market inclusion of people with mental ill-health but that structural fragmentation of responsibilities limits the means of the federal government to develop coherent health and work policies. Successful structural reform requires including a range of actors responsible for policy implementation to achieve coordination across institutions and better integrated service delivery.

    The growing importance of social skills in the labour market

    The fact remains that robots have persistently failed to imitate the most human of skills, such empathy, teamwork, relationship building, etc. While technology may be reducing the demand for some routine skills, it is simultaneously increasing the demand for more difficult-to-automate social skills.

    Many European countries saw further reductions in health spending in 2013, according to OECD Health Statistics 2015. Health spending continued to shrink in Greece, Italy and Portugal in 2013. Most countries in the European Union reported real per capita health spending below the levels of 2009. Outside of Europe, health spending has been growing at around 2.5% per year since 2010.

    Perspectives de l'emploi de l'OCDE 2015

    L’édition 2015 des Perspectives de l’emploi de l’OCDE propose un examen approfondi de l’évolution récente du marché du travail et de ses perspectives à court terme dans les pays de l'OCDE. Une majorité croissante de pays ont recours à des systèmes de salaire minimum afin d’augmenter les revenus dans la partie inférieure de la distribution des salaires. S’il est fixé à un niveau adéquat, un salaire minimum obligatoire permet effectivement d’accroître les revenus des bas salaires, mais c’est un instrument trop générique pour lutter contre la pauvreté, à moins qu’il ne soit efficacement associé à d’autres mesures telles que des prestations liées à l’exercice d’un emploi ou des crédits d’impôt. De nouveaux résultats tirés de l’Enquête internationale de l’OCDE sur les compétences des adultes montrent que les différences de niveau d’inégalité entre les pays en matière de qualifications, le degré d’utilisation des compétences au travail et les avantages salariaux liés aux compétences expliquent pour une large part les écarts de niveau d’inégalités salariales à l’échelle internationale. Des politiques d’activation peuvent contribuer à créer un marché du travail plus inclusif, pour autant que les mesures prises pour motiver les demandeurs d’emploi, améliorer leur employabilité et élargir leurs perspectives d’emploi soient bien coordonnées. L’évaluation à plus long terme de la qualité des emplois montre dans quelle mesure les mouvements ascendants et descendants sur l’échelle des revenus et les mouvements entre emploi et chômage atténuent à tout moment certains des écarts de revenu. Cependant, les risques de chômage chronique et de salaire faible sont extrêmement concentrés. La qualité des emplois dans les économies émergentes est particulièrement faible, mais des politiques visant à faire passer les actifs d’un emploi informel à un emploi formel peuvent contribuer à l’améliorer.

    Fiscal Sustainability of Health Systems - Bridging Health and Finance Perspectives

    The health systems we enjoy today, and expected medical advances in the future, will be difficult to finance from public resources without major reforms. Public health spending in OECD countries has grown rapidly over most of the last half century. These spending increases have contributed to important progress in population health: for example, life expectancy at birth has increased, rising on average by ten years since 1970. The challenge now is to sustain and enhance these achievements in a context of tight fiscal constraints in many countries combined with upward pressure on health spending from factors such as new technological advances and demographic changes. Finding policies that can make health spending more sustainable without compromising important achievements in access and quality requires effective co-operation between health and finance ministries. Sound governance and co-ordination mechanisms are therefore essential to ensure effective policy choices. Prepared by both public finance and health experts, this report provides a unique detailed overview of institutional frameworks for financing health care in OECD countries. One of the main features of this book is a comprehensive mapping of budgeting practices and governance structure in health across OECD countries.

    Why are workers mismatched in the first place? Many, if not most, students choose a field of study based on what they want to become and do to earn a living. Yet almost four in ten workers end up doing something unrelated. This is sometimes by choice but not always.
