Public or private job placement services - are private ones more effective?

Availability

Abstract

"Expenditures on job placement and related services make up a substantial share of many countries' GDP. Contracting out to private providers is often proposed as a more efficient alternative to the state provision of placement services. However, the responsible state agency has to design and monitor sufficiently complete contracts to ensure that the private contractors deliver the desired quality of services. None of the recent empirical evidence indicates that contracting out is necessarily more effective or more efficient than public employment services." (Text excerpt, IAB-Doku) ((en))
