Abstract

We study the performance of public employment services in Finland. In this project, a business intelligence application is developed in close collaboration with the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment. This paper focuses on the matching of vacancies and jobseekers. We utilise one-stage data envelopment analysis and panel data to determine the shape of a matching function, and analyse the effects of operational conditions. The performance of the regional public employment service offices is assessed and the required efficiency measures and performance indicators are regularly reported to the decision-makers in the ministry and the offices using a state-of-the-art data visualization software.
