Plan for the long-term unemployed

COUR DES COMPTES

On 27 September 2021, the government announced its plan to reduce the tensions sweeping the recruitment market as the economy began showing signs of a strong recovery after the health crisis, with many sectors struggling to recruit staff. Part of the plan involved implementing specific actions by the end of 2022 to get long-term (LTUP) and very long-term (VLTUP) unemployed people back to work. This aspect of the plan was backed by major resources. Over €400 million was earmarked for Pôle emploi to ramp up the number of support and training initiatives, and maintain the 700 additional full-time equivalents (FTEs) needed to re-engage the very long-term unemployed. The flash audit published today by the Court of Accounts examines the way in which the plan was designed and deployed, the resources provided, the results obtained, and the lessons to be learned.
