This Toolkit represents a repository of resources that can help regional and/or national policymakers to ensure an inclusive labour market, while capitalising on opportunities created by automation technologies (i.e., referred to as technological transformation).
The Toolkit aims to support achievement of three policy goals:
Self-assessment tool to determine preparedness of a region/country for inclusive labour markets, in light of technological transformation. Based on the assessment, you will be suggested a list of policy objectives that require attention of the policymakers. In addition, you will have access to good policy options and resources to facilitate achievement of these policy objectives.
Case studies on good policy practices and lessons learned, identified in 10 regions of Europe (NUTS2 level). Specifically, Köln (Germany), North Jutland (Denmark), Prague (Czech Republic), Estonia, Pays de la Loire (France), Malta, Lisbon (Portugal), Dolnoslaskie (Poland), Közep-Dunantul (Hungary), Latvia.
Short articles and summaries of key findings, developed based on the literature review, interviews and case studies. Here you will find the discussion on the impacts of automation technologies on the labour market and key concepts, ALMP and PLMP (active and passive labour market policies) in different regions in Europe, the role of PES (public employment services) in supporting inclusion, and many more relevant topics.
This collection includes policy instruments, associated with specific labour market effects, summaries of good policy practices extracted from case studies, and good practices that support (re)integration of specific vulnerable
groups on the labour market. Specifically, we highlight good practices for young people/youth, women, low-skilled workers, migrants and ethnic minorities, people with disabilities or health-related conditions, individuals that live in peripheral areas, and older workers.
You will find two types of policy guidelines: first, on how to design, implement, monitor and evaluate an inclusive employment strategy, and, second, on public participation in the policy-making. All users of the Pillars tools are kindly
invited to develop an action plan that will stimulate an inclusive labour market in their region/country.
Methodological notes on the development of the Pillars self-assessment tool, and on the identification of good policy practices in Europe. The latter has determined our case study selection.
