Manpower Policy in Norway. Reviews of Manpower and Social Policies.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
In recent years the Norwegian manpower authorities have recognized the need for reevaluating and reformulating their objectives and functions and the scope of their activities. Problem areas have been identified and steps undertaken to implement recommended solutions. Efforts have been made to improve labor force participation rates, provide labor market services for the highly skilled, increase geographic mobility, and reduce seasonal unemployment. Improvements in vocational preparation and adjustment are still in the discussion phase. A central manpower authority pursuing an active manpower policy is recommended. (BH)
