OECD Expert Briefing: OECD Employment Outlook


> See the report and press release.


Join us for a presentation of the latest OECD Employment Outlook on July 7 at the OECD Washington Center, followed by reaction from a panel of experts.

The U.S. employment rate continues to rise, but remains nearly three percentage points below pre-crisis levels. A stubborn recovery in labor markets across the OECD countries suggests that larger, structural factors may be at play, requiring forward looking policies to improve skills, productivity, wages, and social protection. 

Please join us as Stefano Scarpetta,director of the OECD Directorate for Employment, Labor and Social Affairs, presents its findings by live video from OECD headquarters. Panelists will include LinkedIn Head of U.S. Public Policy Nicole Isaac; AFL-CIO Chief Economist William Spriggs; and the U.S. Department of Labor representative Kenneth A. Swinnerton. The event will be moderated by NPR Senior Business Editor Marilyn Geewax.


Location: OECD Washington Center, 1776 Eye Street NW, Suite 450
Date: Thursday, July 7
Time: 10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.


The yearly OECD Employment Outlook provides data on unemployment and employment ratios, together with articles on current topics. The 2016 Outlook explores how the labor market has slowly improved following the financial crisis, and what structural reforms and forward-looking policies must be made to close the unemployment and wage gaps.
