    A new pay system at the Republic of Ireland’s state owned commercial
    forestry company Coillte [1] means the end of a pay determination system that
    historically applied to office-based professional grades. The new Reward
    Model and Transformation Agreement states that the old pay system was
    ‘typical’ of what was found ‘within a Public Service culture’ in
    Ireland. Its implementation date is 1 January 2013.

    The Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development (CIPD [1]) released a
    report in September 2012 called Learning to Work [2], examining employers’
    views of young people and their attitudes towards the recruitment of young
    workers. The survey, based on replies from 760 workplaces, showed that a
    quarter of employers had not recruited any workers under the age of 26 in the
    previous year. Only 56% said they intended to recruit a young worker in the
    next 12 months.

    The proportion of people aged 65 and over will rise from 17% to 30% of the EU population by 2060, while at the same time the working age population will decline. The European Commission estimates that most of the increase in public spending in the EU over the next 50 years will be on pensions, long-term care and healthcare. Foundation Findings provide pertinent background information and policy pointers for all actors and interested parties engaged in the current European debate on the future of social policy. The contents are based on Foundation research and reflect its autonomous and tripartite structure.
