Programme to reduce long-term unemployment (expired)
This programme aimed to integrate long-term unemployed persons at the margins of the labour market, and claiming benefits under Book II of the Social Code, into the general labour market on a lasting basis.
This was to be achieved by:
- Specifically recruiting companies for the programme, i.e. special teams in the job centres recruit employers for the programme and provide advice and guidance when hiring individuals in the target group
- Intensive coaching and mentoring of workers once they have taken up employment
- Providing financial compensation to the employer for the reduced output of the individual worker
