  • La escala local en las políticas activas de empleo

    • Authors: Begoña Cueto
      Abstract: The Spanish regulatory framework for employment policies includes the local dimension in its definition. However, it is not clear what the role of local authorities is, even though they have implemented active labour market policies by reaching agreements with the autonomous communities.This article is intended to reflect on the role of local authorities. Its advantage, resulting from its better knowledge on specific problems of the territory, diminishes considering the small size of many municipalities and the difficulties they face when implementing their own policies. Coordination between different administration levels is a necessary condition for citizens to have access to efficient employment services in order to improve their chances of employment.

  • La eficacia del Servei d'Ocupació de Catalunya en el ámbito de la
           intermediación laboral

    • Authors: Joan Antoni Alujas Ruiz
      Abstract: The article focuses on the effectiveness of Public Employment Service (SOC) in labour mediation in Catalonia for the 2007-2014 period. Data was collected from SPEE statistics (Public Service of State Employment) and Ministry of Employment and Social Security, from where a series of evaluation indicators are analysed. The results from SOC are compared with those recorded for the public employment services in all Spain and job placement performed by temporary work agencies. This comparison will allow us to identify the differences and therefore, the effectiveness of public employment agencies. The most obvious conclusion is the low incidence of SOC acting as an intermediary in the labour market, much lower than the average of regional public employment services and at a great distance from the results recorded by the temporary work agencies.
