About the Report
The Netherlands has an inclusion deficit – or rather a surplus of untapped talent. About 1 to 2 million people want and are able to work in some way, but are unable to find sustainable and paid work. The Participation Act does not lead to improvement. It is therefore necessary to focus on a labor market transition, which requires four systemic steps: (1) the broader value of work and participation must be the starting point, (2) the societal benefits of work must be made more visible, (3) the labor market must hold multiple roads to meaningful work and (4) the human dimension and the recognition of talent are crucial. In addition, the labor market regulations must also be adapted.
