Adaptation and Employment of Special Groups of Manpower. Implementing an Active Manpower Policy; Conclusions of the Manpower and Social Affairs Committee.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
Conclusions are presented indicating the role which public bodies, employers, trade unions, and other private groups can play in improving the employment opportunities of special groups, such as older workers, workers with family responsibilities, and workers of rural origin engaged in non-agricultural employment. Because of the increasing number of older workers in the labor force and particularly in industrialized countries, specially organized employment programs which address the problems of maximum age limits, job redesign, and employment services are discussed. The committee concluded that the re-entry of many women into the labor force is dependent upon changing public attitudes, providing adequate community services, and appropriate adult training. Concerning non-agriculturally employed rural-to-urban migrants and their dependents, assistance in mobility and adjustment provisions should be incorporated into national manpower policies, particularly where the size of this migrant population is significant.
