Innovative Approaches to Tackle Long-Term Unemployment

Innovative Approaches to Tackle Long-Term Unemployment

According to Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), in the period 2012–2022 the average unemployment rate in member countries fell from 8% to 5%.

Despite the results achieved, it is long-term unemployment that remains a structural problem for most OECD members. To solve it, a new approach is required, directly aimed at eliminating the barriers that the unemployed face in the process of employment.

The OECD prepared a review of successful practices in combating long-term unemployment in five countries – Austria, Germany, Spain, the Netherlands and Finland. As experts note, these projects are distinguished by a flexible, comprehensive approach that takes into account the individual characteristics of the applicant. Also among the key efficiency factors are cooperation between the state and the private sector, the launch of vocational training programs, and systematic monitoring of the results of projects to combat unemployment.
