Formally adopted by the Council on 22 April, 2013 (Council, 2013a), following a proposal made by the European Commission (EC) in December 2012 (EC, 2012c), the Youth Guarantee aims to offer a good continued education, apprenticeship, training or employment opportunity to all unemployed young people within four months of their leaving employment or education.
The aim of the employment policy is to bring to light labour market frictions that impede the labour market from functioning to its full potential. Indeed, labour market frictions have negative repercussions on the rate of growth of an economy. However, the economic perspective is only one part of the equation. One would also have to take into account the social aspect of employment. The policy document also addresses labour market participation of persons with disability. Measures including co-operatives, supported employment and sheltered employment amongst others provide a safe environment where persons with disability can contribute to society.
This is a social marketing campaign, targeting specific audiences to promote work life balance. This work life balance can only be achieved by input from all parties, females, males, employers and society at large.
The Youth Employment Strategy 2008-2009 is aimed at young people aged between 16 and 25. This document gives an overview of our initiatives for the youth and of the major labour market trends in respect of young people. This strategy sets out those actions that we intend to take in the months to come for our young clients.
The Gender Equality Action Plan provides a detailed outline of our strategic gender equality objectives that have been identified as necessary measures to be undertaken in meeting both our broad and distinctive duties. This document sets out the Corporation’s revised gender equality scheme for 2009-2010 and also includes an update of progress made over the past two years since the last Gender Equality Action Plan was published in 2007. Momentous progress has been made in a number of valid areas over the past years. As a result of this positive feedback Jobsplus continued to engage its customers, staff and stakeholders in all the development phases of the action plan.
