Decisions in mid-term policy to boost employment
The Government is committed to a long-term approach in its work to raise the employment rate through decisions that will bring an estimated 80,000 new jobs.
The Government’s objective is that by the middle of the decade the employment rate will be 75%.
“Within the Ministry of Employment, the most important decisions to promote employment in the mid-term policy review are the establishment of a new intermediary, Välittäjä Oy, to support the employment of people with partial work ability and the transfer of TE services to municipalities together with an incentive model. In addition, promotion of work-based immigration is essential if we want to increase employment and ensure the availability of skilled labour”, says Minister of Employment Tuula Haatainen.
