Skills are the key to shaping a better future. Skills are central to the capacity of countries and people to thrive in an increasingly interconnected and rapidly changing world. Megatrends such as globalisation, technological advance and demographic change are reshaping work and society, generating a growing demand for higher levels of skills, as well as new sets of skills.

OECD Skills Strategy projects provide a strategic and comprehensive approach to assess countries’ skills challenges and opportunities, and build more effective skills systems. The OECD works collaboratively with countries to develop policy responses that are tailored to each country’s specific skills needs. The foundation of this approach is the OECD Skills Strategy framework, which allows for an exploration of what countries can do better to i) develop relevant skills over the life course, ii) use skills effectively in work and in society, and iii) strengthen the governance of the skills system.

This report, OECD Skills Strategy Poland: Assessment and Recommendations, identifies opportunities and recommends actions to make the education system more reponsive to labour market needs, foster participation in adult learning, increase the use of skills in workplaces and strengthen the governance of the skills system in Poland.


Strengthening the use of skills in Polish workplaces

The effective use of skills in workplaces has potential benefits for employers, employees and the society as it can raise productivity, wages and job satisfaction. Policy makers can work with employers to provide direct support or to help create the conditions to increase skills use in workplaces. This chapter explores four opportunities to strengthen the use of skills in Polish workplaces: 1) raising awareness of the relevance of effective skills use and related high-performance workplace practices (HPWP); 2) supporting enterprises and organisations to adopt HPWP; 3) equipping management staff with the right skills to implement HPWP; and 4) engaging employees effectively to implement HPWP.
