Billion invested in job market coaching did not lead to more Swedish jobs

Thursday, 06 December 2012
The Swedish government invested millions into the job market training and coaching so that job seekers could quickly get into work. This was seen as a good idea but that has not resulted either job creation or reduced unemployment.
According to a new report by the Swedish Institute for Evaluation of Labour Market and Education Policy (IFAU) made on behalf of the government. The number job seekers registered with the state employment agency was the same before and after the job seeker had been with a job coach.

The Institute for Evaluation of Labour Market and Education Policy (IFAU) , has now taken a looked into the effects the government's focused job market coaching actually had and its results are not good.
Job Coaching which has been around since 2009 and a reform which has cost 3 billion has yielded if any, very small effect, according to Linus Liljeberg, one of the report authors.
