Employment policies and data



The OECD is reviewing Korea's system of active labour market policies (ALMPs), with a view to bring in lessons and good practices from other OECD countries. Throughout the project, which runs from 2022 to 2024, the OECD works in consultation with the Ministry of Employment and Labour (MOEL) and other stakeholders to ensure high quality analyses corresponding to Korea’s needs.

Achieving a more inclusive labour market, with high quality job opportunities for all population groups, is important to avoid that people with vulnerabilities are left behind and to prevent labour market shortages from building up.

In this context, active labour market policies (ALMPs) and Public Employment Services (PES) have a key role to play by supporting jobseekers and employers, improving labour market matching and addressing the barriers that vulnerable groups face in entering the labour market.

Over the past years, Korea has made a number of changes in its provision of ALMPs, including through important efforts to modernise and digitalise the PES. The OECD is reviewing and assessing Korea’s current ALMPs and PES to further fine-tune their effectiveness and efficiency, while drawing on other OECD countries’ experiences and good practices. 

The project focuses on the following topics:
