Job pathways: employment retention and advancement
This four-year study, supported by an Australian Research Council Linkage grant, aimed to identify the factors that assist people who have been unemployed to retain jobs and build career paths.
The Brotherhood partnered with the University of Melbourne, the University of Bristol and the London School of Economics.
The findings will be important for employment policy development in Australia, indicating ways to improve the human capital of disadvantaged entrants to the labour market and thereby reduce long-term poverty and social exclusion.
