The OECD Skills Outlook provides new insights into skills issues and policies that influence the well-being of individuals and countries. It analyses the linkages between skills development and a wide range of outcomes such as employment, productivity, and inclusive growth. It further examines how skills can help individuals and countries to thrive in the context of demographic change, migration, globalisation and digitalisation. Each edition, prepared with inputs from experts across the OECD, covers a particular theme, presenting new findings and policy recommendations.
