    OECD Skills Strategy Diagnostic Report: Mexico 2017

    Skills are central to Mexico’s future prosperity and the well-being of its people. Improving opportunities for all Mexicans to develop high quality and relevant skills and supporting employers to improve their human resources management can help Mexico to raise productivity levels and, by extension, the incentives for employers to hire individuals in the formal sector. Fostering better and more equitable skills outcomes, especially for women and youth, will also provide the foundation for building a healthier, more equitable, and more cohesive society.The OECD Skills Strategy Diagnostic Report: Mexico sets out eight skills challenges for Mexico. These challenges were identified through two interactive workshops with stakeholders, bilateral meetings, internal discussions with experts at the OECD, and analysis of documents and data produced by the OECD and other organisations. The first six challenges refer to specific outcomes across the three pillars of developing, activating and using skills. The next two challenges refer to the 'enabling' conditions that strengthen the overall skills system. Success in tackling these skills challenges will boost performance across the whole skills system.

    OECD Guidelines on Measuring the Quality of the Working Environment

    This publication presents an internationally agreed set of guidelines for producing more comparable statistics on the quality of the working environment, a concept that encompasses all the non-pecuniary aspects of one's job, and is one of the three dimensions of the OECD Job Quality framework. These Guidelines take stock of current data availability in this field, review the analytic and policy uses of these measures, proposes a conceptual framework based on 6 dimensions and 17 characteristics (ranging from physical risk factors and work intensity, through to task discretion, autonomy and opportunities for self-realisation), assesses the statistical quality of measures in this field, and provides guidance to data producers and users on methodological challenges in this field. These Guidelines also include a number of prototype surveys modules that national and international agencies could use in their surveys.

    These Guidelines have been produced as part of the OECD Better Life Initiative, a pioneering project launched in 2011 with the objective of measuring society's conditions across 11 dimensions of people's well-being. They follow on from similar measurement guidelines on subjective well-being, micro statistics on household wealth, integrated analysis of the distribution on household income, consumption and wealth, as well as trust.

    Getting skills right in the United Kingdom

    The UK has enjoyed record-high employment levels in recent years and one of the lowest unemployment rates among OECD countries. However, labour productivity growth, which is closely linked to the use of skills, remains weak. As a result, the OECD’s Getting Skills Right: United Kingdom suggests that several actions should be taken to bring skill supply more in line with skill demand to help to boost growth, productivity and earnings.

    Le recrutement des travailleurs immigrés: France 2017

    Cette étude a pour objectif d’analyser les politiques publiques françaises en matière de recrutement de main-d’oeuvre immigrée depuis l’étranger et d'évaluer dans quelle mesure la migration économique répond aux besoins du marché du travail. L'immigration professionnelle étant de faible ampleur en France, une attention particulière est également portée aux changements de statut, notamment d’anciens étudiants, ainsi qu'aux régularisations pour motif économique, dont la persistance pourrait témoigner de besoins de main-d'oeuvre non satisfaits. Le fonctionnement des dispositifs actuels d'immigration professionnelle en France – permanente, temporaire et saisonnière – est examiné, en particulier l'efficacité des tests du marché du travail et des listes de métiers en tension. Le nouveau dispositif pour l'immigration qualifiée, le passeport talent, est également analysé pour évaluer sa capacité à remédier aux écueils légaux et opérationels identifiés dans l'étude et à renforcer l'attractivité de la France pour les talents étrangers.
