The Future of Work Commission today released the first of its background papers on flexicurity. The paper Education and Training – Lessons from Denmark was written by economist and former McKinsey and Company consultant Kinley Salmon.
Flexicurity is a way of ensuring a high level of security for workers while retaining economic growth with three main components: flexible labour markets, generous benefits, and extensive active labour market policies - in particular education and training - to get people back to work. This paper focusses on the education and training component and the experience of that in Denmark.
The paper is available here.
