OECD releases new Jobs Strategy for stronger and more inclusive labour markets

On December 4th, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has released a revised version of its Jobs Strategy. Under the title “Good Jobs for All in a Changing World of Work”, the new Jobs Strategy addresses major transformations the labour markets of OECD and emerging economies are undergoing.


Key message of the Jobs Strategy is that flexibility-enhancing policies in product and labour markets are necessary but need to be accompanied by policies and institutions that foster inclusiveness and allow workers and firms to make the most of ongoing changes.

The OECD's Jobs Strategy gives detailed policy recommendations and provides guidance on how those can be best implemented through national reforms and policy packages.
