State Facilitation of Job Transitions

Policy or Initiative Description

Governments should facilitate the transition and secure the ability of workers to move between jobs. Policies should follow best practices for social innovations that protect workers, such as the social and training funds managed jointly between employers and unions. This will prioritize the protection of labor market security over individual job security.


Countries including Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and others have training systems in which social partners play a greater in designing, certifying, and managing the training programs. For an overview of the role of social partners worldwide, see the attached report by OECD.
