An event history approach to the evaluation of training, recruitment and employment programmes

An event history approach to the evaluation of training, recruitment and employment programmes In this paper I evaluate a number of training, recruitment and employment programmes.

Abstract

In this paper I evaluate a number of training, recruitment and employment programmes. The evaluation method is a combination of a quasi‐experimental design (a simple pre‐treatment‐post‐treatment design) and a stochastic process model to describe the response variables. I conclude that the programmes have no effect on older workers. Female and minority workers benefit most from the programmes. The training programmes are less effective than the recruitment programmes, which are in turn less effective than the employment programmes.
