    Behavioural Insights and Organisations - Fostering Safety Culture

    Behavioural insights (BI) has become widely used by public bodies around the world, mostly towards improving the way policies are implemented and influencing individual behaviour. As the field of BI evolves to tackle more complex policy issues, there is widespread perception that BI can and should go beyond the study of individual-level decision processes for higher impact. This report presents research on applying BI to changing the behaviour of organisations, with a focus on fostering elements of a safety culture in the energy sector. It presents comparative findings from experiments with energy regulators in Canada, Ireland, Mexico and Oman, as well as guidance for applying BI to safety culture going forward.

    Recruiting Immigrant Workers: Canada 2019

    Canada has not only the largest in terms of numbers, but also the most elaborate and longest-standing skilled labour migration system in the OECD. Largely as a result of many decades of managed labour migration, more than one in five people in Canada is foreign-born, one of the highest shares in the OECD. 60% of Canada’s foreign-born population are highly educated, the highest share OECD-wide. The recent introduction of Express Entry, a two-step selection system based on an initial pre-sreening of suitable candidates who enter a pool by Expression of Interest and subsequent selection of the most skilled candidates from the pool, has further enhanced the competitive edge of the selection system relative to other countries. It also ensures that those with the skills to succeed are admitted to Canada in a quick and efficient way. Core to Canada's success is not only the elaborate selection system itself, but also the innovation and infrastructure around it, which ensures constant testing, monitoring and adaptation of its parameters. This includes a comprehensive and constantly improving data infrastructure, coupled with the capacity to analyse it, and swift policy reaction to new evidence and emerging challenges.

    Promouvoir une croissance verte et inclusive au Canada

    Le niveau de bien-être au Canada est élevé. Le Canada obtient des résultats supérieurs à la moyenne de l'Organisation pour les onze éléments entrant dans la construction de l’Indicateur du vivre mieux de l’OCDE. Cette performance tient pour une part au fait que l’économie et le marché du travail se sont mieux comportés que dans la quasi-totalité des pays de l’OCDE ayant subi le violent contrecoup de la crise financière mondiale. Le pays pourrait pourtant faire encore mieux dans certains domaines. Le Canada doit améliorer ses résultats en matière de productivité, en s’appuyant sur le récent rebond de la croissance de la productivité du travail pour se rapprocher des pays de l’OCDE les plus performants en termes de productivité. L’écart de productivité avec les États-Unis est particulièrement marqué pour les petites et moyennes entreprises. La croissance de la productivité pourrait en outre être plus inclusive. Les personnes issues de milieux socialement défavorisés ou de communautés autochtones, actuellement, ne participent pas autant qu’ils le pourraient et qu’ils le devraient à la forte performance économique du pays.  Enfin, le Canada doit évoluer vers une croissance plus verte afin d’être en mesure de prendre sa juste part de l’action engagée à l’échelle mondiale pour lutter contre le changement climatique.
