While much has been achieved since the publication of Workforce Plus in 2006, wider changes emphasise the need for a fresh approach. In an environment of slow economic growth and higher levels of unemployment, we now consider what more can be done to support those out of work within the wider context of Scotland’s economic recovery.
Developed in consultation with a wide range of partners, Working for Growth provides a clear framework to strengthen our combined focus on jobs and growth. It does so under the following themes, inspired by the four pillars of our response to the Christie report on the Future Delivery of Public Services:
- Strategy and Effective Leadership
- Better Integration and Partnership Working
- Towards Prevention – Tackling Inequality
- Improving Performance
