Results and expected impact
Using a wide array of empirical material, the project argues that certain labour market participants face several barriers leading to comparatively lower employment rates, positions and salaries. On the other hand, Vienna and Istanbul would benefit from improving framework conditions for labour market inclusion. A prominent barrier is the first stage of the recruiting process which is particularly prone to prejudices, stereotypes or (conscious or unconscious) discrimination.
The job platform concept developed in the project tackles this issue. It proposes a webbased technology which manages the entire application and recruiting process and implements several anti-discriminatory measures. It is a useful guideline and blueprint for new job search platforms to be used e.g. by public employment services.
