This report takes a case study approach, analysing the management and implementation of policies in the Drava and South-East regions of Slovenia. It provides a comparative framework to understand the role of the local labour market policy in matching people to jobs, engaging employers in skills development activities, as well as fostering new growth and economic development opportunities. It includes practical policy examples of actions taken in Slovenia to help workers find better quality jobs, while also stimulating productivity and inclusion.


Executive summary

Relative to other OECD countries, Slovenia compares well on most economic, education and social measures. The 2008 crisis revealed a number of vulnerabilities in the economy, putting significant downward pressure on growth and prosperity. Since then, the government has responded with a number of important measures to stimulate job creation and productivity. Yet Slovenia still faces labour market challenges, related to the low participation rate of older workers, and the prevalence of skills shortages and mismatches in certain occupations.
