Antra Salmane, Anita Puzule

Abstract


Along with the rapid development of technologies, demand on the labor market changes, still the skills and knowledge of jobseekers do not match the market needs. The State Employment Agency (hereinafter – SEA) implements training measures for the unemployed. Nevertheless, there is a problem that the unemployed involved in training do not always want to enter the labour market, or their knowledge acquired during the training is not useful. The aim of the study is to assess the economic efficiency of the financial resources allocated for training of the unemployed persons in the context of Latvia and its regions. Research methods: monographic method, graphical method, expert survey method, correlation and regression analysis. The authors explore the use of the financial resources allocated for training and analyse its economic efficiency in Latvia and Latvia's regions. It is found that the difference in unemployment rates in the statistical regions of Latvia has significantly increased during the study period. In order to facilitate the reintegration of individuals into the labour market, more funding is provided for training in the regions with higher unemployment rates. The economic efficiency of the use of financial resources varies from region to region, both in terms of the cost of training per unemployed person involved and the number of the trainees employed after the training, and of the funding for training used in the region.
