Employment and Skills Strategies in Poland

image of Employment and Skills Strategies in Poland

With the rising economic importance of human resources and skills, employment and training agencies are often expected to play a more important role in local strategies to support new job creation, facilitate restructuring and increase productivity. The OECD Local Economic and Employment Development (LEED) Programme has developed a series of reviews on Local Job Creation to examine the contribution of local labour market policy to boosting quality employment and enhancing productivity. For Poland, the review has looked at the range of institutions and bodies involved in employment and skills policies, focusing on local strategies in the city of Poznań and the Radomski sub-region.



Policy context for employment and skills in Poland

This chapter provides an overview of Poland’s employment and skills system and the economic context. Poland was one of the few OECD countries where GDP growth remained positive during the financial crisis. While it experienced an abrupt slowdown in 2012, growth is now back on a solid path. Compared to other OECD countries, responsibility for labour market policies and vocational education and training are relatively decentralised, and important reforms have been implemented in both policy areas in recent years.
