Supporting people into sustained employment

How can policy makers best support people into, or back into, sustained employment following a period of unemployment? This always matters, but is particularly important now given the uncertain prospects for the labour market as the UK economy looks to recover and rebuild following the disruption caused by the Covid pandemic.

In discussion with Graham Thom – SQW’s Managing Director and expert on employment and labour market policy – the podcast covers issues including the importance of designing policy that:

  • Reflects different needs and groups
  • Is responsive to changing employer requirements and economic trends
  • Considers fully the relationships between national and local responses and interventions
