Coût salarial, subventions salariales, productivité du travail et effort de formation des entreprises [19/07/2013]
Within the context of the economic stimulus plan adopted at the end of 2012, the government set up a group of experts from the National Bank of Belgium (NBB), the Federal Planning Bureau (FPB), the High Council for Employment (HCE), the Directorate General Statistics and Economic Information (DGSEI), the Central Economic Council (CEC) and Eurostat. The group was charged with the following missions:
- an impact analysis of subsidies which decrease labour costs in Belgium and in its three main neighbouring countries;
- an analysis per industry of the differences in labour costs and productivity between Belgium and its three main neighbouring countries;
- an objectification of the training efforts by enterprises with regard to the 1.9 % objective set by law.
To complete these missions, the group of experts has drawn up this two-part report. The first part (A) deals with productivity and labour costs and the second part (B) discusses training efforts by enterprises.GECE_EGCW_1301
