    Better Use of Skills in the Workplace - Why It Matters for Productivity and Local Jobs

    This joint OECD-ILO report provides a comparative analysis of case studies focusing on improving skills use in the workplace across eight countries. The examples provide insights into the practical ways in which employers interact with government services and policies at the local level. They highlight the need to build policy coherence across employment, skills, economic development and innovation policies, and underline the importance of ensuring that skills utilisation is built into policy development thinking and implementation.

    Skills utilisation concerns the extent to which skills are effectively applied in the workplace to maximise workplace and individual performance. It involves a mix of policies including work organisation, job design, technology adaptation, innovation, employee-employer relations, human resource development practices and business-product market strategies. It is often at the local level that the interface of these factors can best be addressed.

    OECD Reviews of Labour Market and Social Policies: Costa Rica

    Costa Rica has recorded many social and economic achievements and currently enjoys one of the highest levels of well-being in the OECD. But progress has come to a standstill in most recent years and challenges have emerged along several social and labour market dimensions. Existing policies are outdated and no longer effective in today’s dynamic, export oriented economy which requires greater flexibility and more high skilled and technically skilled workers. How can Costa Rica better respond to the challenges of technological change and globalisation whilst minimising the transition costs it endures as it moves to a higher and a more sustainable path to inclusive growth? This report provides comprehensive analysis of Costa Rica’s policies and practices compared with best practice in the field of labour, social and migration from across the OECD and other countries in the Latin American region.  It contains several recommendations to tackle key challenges facing Costa Rica, including low labour utilisation, increasing inequality, high poverty and high-risk economic exclusion especially of the low skilled and migrants.  This report will be of interest in Costa Rica as well as other countries looking to promote a more dynamic and an inclusive economy.

    Le recrutement des travailleurs immigrés: France 2017

    Cette étude a pour principal objectif d’analyser les politiques publiques françaises en matière de recrutement de main-d’œuvre immigrée depuis l’étranger et d'évaluer dans quelle mesure la migration économique répond aux besoins marché du travail. Dans la mesure où l'immigration professionnelle est de faible ampleur en France une attention particulière est également portée aux changements de statut (le principal contingent étant constitué d'anciens étudiants) ainsi qu'aux régularisations pour motif économique dont la persistance pourrait témoigner de besoins de main-d'œuvre non satisfaits. Le fonctionnement des dispositifs actuels de l'immigration professionnelle en France (permanente, temporaire et saisonnière) est examiné, et notamment l'efficacité des tests du marché du travail et des listes de métiers en tension (ouvrant l’accès à certains métiers) pour les cartes de séjour « salarié ». Une attention particulière est portée au nouveau dispositif pour l'immigration qualifiée (« passeport talent ») pour évaluer dans quelle mesure l'évolution de la législation permet de remédier aux écueils légaux et opérationels identifiés dans l'étude et permettra de renforcer l'attractivité de la France pour les talents étrangers.

    L'autonomisation économique des femmes dans la région MENA - L'impact des cadres juridiques algérien, égyptien, jordanien, libyen, marocain et tunisien

    Ce rapport examine comment les dispositions légales en vigueur en Algérie, en Égypte, en Jordanie, en Libye, au Maroc et en Tunisie impactent la capacité des femmes à participer pleinement à la vie économique, que ce soit en tant qu'employées ou comme entrepreneuses. Il s’appuie sur une analyse comparative des différents droits énoncés dans les constitutions, les lois sur le statut personnel, la législation du travail, ainsi que les lois fiscales et commerciales. Le rapport reconnaît les progrès considérables accomplis – notamment dans le sillage des soulèvements de 2011 – suite à l’adoption de réformes constitutionnelles et institutionnelles visant à renforcer le statut des femmes.

    Ouvrir le champ des opportunités offertes aux femmes reste toutefois un défi pour les six pays. Le rapport suggère que ceci pourrait être dû à divers facteurs tels que : l’existence de certaines lois discriminantes en matière de genre, des contradictions entre les divers cadres juridiques, le manque de mécanismes d’application, ainsi que les entraves à l’accès au système judiciaire. Grâce à des politiques ciblées, les pays peuvent relever ces défis et contribuer à libérer le potentiel des femmes pour favoriser la croissance, la compétitivité et un développement social inclusif.

    The Pursuit of Gender Equality - An Uphill Battle

    Gender inequalities persist in all areas of social and economic life and across countries. Young women in OECD countries generally obtain more years of schooling than young men, but women are less likely than men to engage in paid work. Gaps widen with age, as motherhood typically has marked negative effects on gender pay gaps and career advancement. Women are also less likely to be entrepreneurs, and are underrepresented in private and public leadership positions.

    The 2013 and 2015 OECD Gender Recommendations provide guidance on how to advance gender equality in education, employment, entrepreneurship and public life; this book discusses recent developments in these areas in one overview chapter and 24 short chapters which each include key findings and policy recommendations. Topics include violence against women, gender budgeting, the unequal sharing of unpaid work, labour market outcomes and migration. The book presents a range of indicators illustrating gender gaps. It also discusses recent policy initiatives, such as pay transparency measures to reduce gender wage gaps and policy reform aimed at fathers taking parental leave. Overall, progress has been slow and there is a strong need for further policy action to close gender gaps in education, employment, entrepreneurship and public life.

    Preventing Ageing Unequally

    This report examines how the two global mega-trends of population ageing and rising inequalities have been developing and interacting, both within and across generations. Taking a life-course perspective the report shows how inequalities in education, health, employment and earnings compound, resulting in large differences in lifetime earnings across different groups. It suggests a policy agenda to prevent, mitigate and cope with inequalities along the life course drawing on good practices in OECD countries and emerging economies.
