Les dispositifs publics d’accompagnement des restructurations en 2017 - La baisse du nombre de salariés concernés se poursuit

En 2017, 143 900 personnes se sont inscrites à Pôle emploi suite à un licenciement économique, soit 12 % de moins qu’en 2016. Un peu plus de la moitié d’entre elles ont signé un contrat de sécurisation professionnelle (CSP), dispositif d’accompagnement renforcé réservé aux licenciés économiques d’entreprises de moins de 1 000 salariés ou en dépôt de bilan ; le nombre d’adhérents au CSP a lui aussi diminué (-16 % en 2017).
Le nombre de salariés concernés par des mesures de reclassement ou de reconversion dans les entreprises confrontées à de graves difficultés diminue depuis 2011 – en lien notamment avec la fin des cellules de reclassement – et atteint 2 560 en 2017.
En 2017, 570 plans de sauvegarde de l’emploi (PSE) ont été mis en œuvre, dont 55 % résultent de la validation d’un accord entre l’entreprise et les organisations syndicales (63 % si on exclut les situations de liquidation ou de redressement judiciaire). Un PSE doit être mis en place par toute entreprise de 50 salariés ou plus, qui envisage de licencier au moins 10 salariés dans un délai de 30 jours.

The Death of the Reference Page

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Jeff Utecht[Edit][Delete]: The Death of the Reference Page, TechLearning [Edit][Delete]Techlearning [Edit][Delete] October 3, 2006
And about time, I would say. I have never had the patience to deal with those pages, and worse, the artificially constraining manuals of style imposed on writers (is this what I trained ten years to do?) in lieu of proper linking. More...

A Common Language and Knowledge Base for ID?

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Charles M. Reigeluth and Alison Carr-Chellman[Edit][Delete]: A Common Language and Knowledge Base for ID?, IT Forum [Edit][Delete] October 3, 2006
I was all prepared to rake this one over the coals. After all, I have been reading the comments on IT Forum for the last month, and it seems like Yet Another Attempt to impose order on a messy discipline. But I hadn't read the paper, so I held off linking to it here. Good thing. It is actually a pretty good paper, if you take it at face value, as an analysis of the various aspects and dimensions of eductaional theory (or, instructional design, or...). More...

Should All Learning Professionals Be Blogging?

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Tony Karrer[Edit][Delete]: Should All Learning Professionals Be Blogging?, Learning Circuits Blog [Edit][Delete] October 3, 2006
The learning Circuits blog asks people to respond - and what I really like is that they ask people to respond on their own blogs, not the Learning Circuits blog (this is actually a much larger advance in thinking than it may seem, since the temptation is always to bring writers in to a centralized source). My own contribution is therefore posted on my own blog. More...

Why School Reform Is Impossible

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Seymour Papert[Edit][Delete]: Why School Reform Is Impossible, The Journal of the Learning Sciences [Edit][Delete] October 3, 2006
"The structure of School is so deeply rooted that one reacts to deviations from it as one would to a grammatically deviant utterance: Both feel wrong on a level deeper than one's ability to formulate reasons. This phenomenon is related to 'assimilation blindness' insofar as it refers to a mechanism of mental closure to foreign ideas. More...
