The findings highlight the importance of an interview style that is collaborative, directive, pro-active, positive and challenging. This report presents the findings of an in-depth qualitative study - carried out by the Social Policy Research Unit and the Centre for Advanced Studies in Language & Communication at the University of York - of WFIs between Personal Advisers and claimants in Jobcentre Plus offices, and a comparison with WFIs in private sector Employment Zone (EZ) offices. Over 180 scheduled WFIs were (mostly video) recorded in Jobcentre Plus and EZ offices in four areas of the country, involving three claimant groups, those claiming Jobseeker's Allowance, incapacity benefits and Income Support for lone parents.Availability: (1)

Age differences in job loss, job search, and reemployment /

by Johnson, Richard | Urban Institute | Mommaerts, Corina.

Publisher: Washington, DC Urban Institute 2011Description: PDF.Other title: The program on retirement policy. Discussion paper ; no. 11-01.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: January 2011 Bibliography pp. 29-33 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: Working longer is often hailed as the best way to increase retirement incomes, yet this strategy depends crucially on seniors' ability to find work and hold on to their jobs. This study examines how the incidence and consequences of job displacement vary by age. Results show that older workers are less likely than younger workers to lose their jobs, but only because they generally have spent more time with their employers. When older workers lose their jobs, it takes them longer than their younger counterparts to become reemployed, and when they do find work they generally experience sharp wage declines.Availability: (1)

Ageing and the barriers to labour force participation in Australia /

by Adair, Tim | National Seniors Productive Ageing Centre | Hosseini-Chavoshi, Meimanat.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australia. Department of Education Employment and Workplace Relations 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: December 2011 Bibliography pp. 35-38 Appendix p. 39Summary: The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) projects that, between 2011 and 2020, the number of persons aged 50 and over in Australia will increase by more than 22 per cent. By 2050, the number aged 50 and over will have increased by over 80 per cent, or by 6.4 million. In comparison, the number of persons aged 18 to 49 is projected to grow by just over 35 per cent by 2050. This important demographic change, ceteris paribus, implies a greater role for mature age Australians both economically and in society more generally.Availability: (1)

Department of Work and Pensions working paper.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2011 Bibliography : p. 38-40 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: This working paper presents findings from research commissioned by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and funded by an Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) CASE PhD studentship in collaboration with DWP. The study had two main aims: first, to examine the benefit and activation policies in other Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries which are most effective in assisting partnered women into work; and secondly, to assess the transferability of these policies to the British context. The research examined reforms in Australia and Denmark and concentrated on policies and programmes focusing on lone and partnered parents (Australia) and married couples (Denmark). The paper considers the key policy components from the two case study countries and offers a number of possibilities for policy transfer and translation.Availability: (1)

Eligibility criteria for unemployment benefits : quantitative indicators for OECD and EU countries /

by Venn, Danielle | Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

Publisher: Paris, France OECD Publishing 2012Description: PDF.Other title: OECD social, employment and migration working papers ; no. 131.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: January 2012 Bibliography pp. 59-60 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: Eligibility criteria for unemployment benefits, which require recipients to actively look for work, take up suitable job offers or take part in active labour market programmes (ALMPs), or risk benefit sanctions, can play an important role in offsetting the negative impact of generous unemployment benefits on employment incentives. This paper presents information on the strictness of eligibility criteria for unemployment benefits for 36 OECD and/or EU member countries. It covers entitlement conditions (employment and/or contribution requirements to gain access to benefits and sanctions for voluntary unemployment), job-search requirements (availability requirements during ALMPs and suitable work criteria), monitoring of job-search effort and sanctions for refusing a job offer or ALMP placement. These qualitative data are then used to compile a composite indicator of the strictness of eligibility criteria and some comparisons are made with the results of a similar exercise for earlier periods. This indicator complements existing cross-country indicators relating to unemployment benefits, such as net replacement rate data from the OECD Tax and Benefits database and data on ALMP expenditure compiled annually by Eurostat and the OECD.Availability: (1)

Enhancing youth employability : what? why? and how? guide to core work skills /

by Brewer, Laura.

Publisher: Geneva, Switzerland International Labour Office 2013Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: 2013Summary: This paper is designed to guide readers through the key issues in identifying the relevant core skills for employability, understanding their importance and ways these skills can be delivered, attained and recognized. An ILO review of numerous teaching methodologies and training techniques demonstrates that acquiring such skills requires innovative ways of delivering training, so that core skills go hand in hand with technical skills. This guide illustrates various ways of integrating employability skills into core academic content and vocational training, rather than providing a 'core skills curriculum'.Availability: (1)
