The Investment Approach

Employment Outcomes Investment Strategy 2017/18

The Investment Strategy (the Strategy) sets out the focus areas which underpin spending allocations for funding for employment outcomes.

The Strategy highlights which groups of clients employment and work readiness spending will be targeted towards, as an investment priority based on various data sources, such as the annual actuarial valuation, the Benefits System Performance Report (BSPR) and the cost-effectiveness report of employment assistance.

Underpinning the Strategy is a Work Programme that outlines in more detail the specific programmes and interventions, funded through the MCA, that will help achieve the outcomes identified in the Investment Plan.

Part of the purpose of making the Strategy public is to attract interest from external organisations to work collaboratively with the Ministry. This will help us better understand the complexities faced by some of our clients and contribute towards developing new services aimed at improving client outcomes.
