Labour Market Planning and Management

The Sustainable Development Goals aim to achieve sustained economic growth, higher levels of productivity and technological innovation. Encouraging entrepreneurship and job creation are key to this, as are effective measures to eradicate forced labour, slavery and human trafficking. However, transformative new structural challenges such as automation, supply chain complexities and increased market segmentation require greater sophistication in managing labour market interventions.
GDSI supports public authorities in labour market policy design and management. We can help you build the information systems and the analytical capacity to monitor labour market developments and forecast likely labour market directions in the future. We can help you to design innovative measures to relieve unemployment, promote entrepreneurship, and build training systems that are capable of responding quickly and flexibly to the needs of the economy.


A team of labour market economists helped to create Russia’s first regional labour market information centre in Kaliningrad. This Centre, which was linked to the Federal Employment Services, had the capacity to gather data on various aspects of labour demand and supply and to prepare complex labour market forecasts. Several of the analytical tools piloted in Kaliningrad were later adopted by every region in the Russian Federation.

All happiness depends on courage and work.

The collapse of Kazakhstan’s industrial base after the breakup of the former Soviet Union, brought economic devastation and staggering levels of unemployment to many of the country’s mono-company towns. Our multi-disciplinary team of labour market economists and sociologists designed an innovative programme of social protection that simultaneously provided an immediate social safety net while at the same time promoting entrepreneurial activity and the diversification of the local economy. The pilot programme was adopted by the national authorities for rollout across all of Kazakhstan’s mono-company towns.
