This article reports on a statement issued by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) that incentives to get benefit claimants back to work should target excluded groups. According to Gerwyn Davies, public policy adviser at the CIPD, employers are reluctant to recruit from particular jobless groups -- such as people with a criminal record, history of illness or drug or alcohol dependency. Davies suggests that the government needs to reflect this in its incentives framework.
