Employment policies tend to focus on unemployed people, but evidence indicates that many people who are economically inactive also have labour market potential. This report examines groups within the inactive population that find it difficult to enter or re-enter the labour market and explores the reasons why. It maps the characteristics and living conditions of these groups, discusses their willingness to work and examines the barriers that prevent them from doing so. The report also looks at strategies being implemented by Member States to promote the inclusion of those outside the labour market. It highlights that many inactive people would like to work in some capacity, particularly students and homemakers. Stressing the importance of focusing on the specific needs of the inactive population in designing and implementing effective strategies for their labour market integration, the report argues that Member States should fully implement the 2008 European Commission Recommendation on the active inclusion of people excluded from the labour market.

    Reactivar: oportunidades de empleo para personas económicamente inactivas

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Para alcanzar los objetivos de Europa 2020 en materia de empleo y de lucha contra la pobreza, es importante que la atención de las políticas no se centre únicamente en aquellas personas que están desempleadas sino también en las que están económicamente inactivas. De acuerdo con la definición de la Organización Internacional del Trabajo (OIT), se entiende por personas económicamente inactivas aquellas que no están trabajando, no buscan trabajo y/o no están en disposición de trabajar. Si bien la situación de las personas desempleadas está bien estudiada y ha sido objetivo principal de múltiples estrategias de empleo, no se puede decir exactamente lo mismo en caso de la población inactiva. Los esfuerzos desplegados recientemente en algunos Estados miembros demuestran, sin embargo, que también dentro de este colectivo hay grupos con potencial de inserción en el mercado laboral.
