Problem statement

High unemployment rates and long periods of unemployed being on social benefits

MiLab innovative approach:

Shifting the responsibility towards the unemployed rather than Employment Agency and slight improvements of the quality of the curriculum lead to increased performance and shortening of the average period of stay within the system, thus cutting on costs.

Innovations for change outcomes:

A trial developed by the BIT and the UK government's Department for Work and Pensions found that small changes to the job search process led to an increase in the number of job seekers coming off benefits within 13-week period.
