Implementationsstudie zur Berliner Joboffensive



"The pilot project 'Berliner Joboffensive' (BJO) aimed at increasing the number of labor market integrations of individuals receiving means-tested unemployment benefits II (also known as Hartz IV) by intensified counseling and assistance. To this end, the caseload of 650 caseworkers in twelve Jobcenters in Berlin was reduced to 100 jobseekers per caseworker. Furthermore, these jobseekers were considered to be relatively close to the labor market and should have received intensive and individualized help to find an appropriate job on the (first) labor market quickly. The Federal Employment Office commissioned the ISG-Institute to investigate the implementation of the BJO using qualitative methods of empirical research. The study aimed at investigating whether and to which extent the objective of a more intensified and individualized assistance of jobseekers was achieved. It was conducted during August 2011 and July 2013. The report at hand summarizes the results." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
