Algeria's employment policies and practice: an overview

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article provides a review and analysis of Algeria’ s employment policies and their implementation under a planned economy and the reasons for the recent changes towards a more liberalised economic system. It starts with a brief account of the economic, political and social context in which people are employed and managed. The main functions of employing and managing people are explained by examining the practice of employee resourcing, employee training and development, rewards and remuneration, and employee relations before and after recent reforms. We conclude that the problems of employment in Algeria are the outcome of contradictory socio-economic policies and there is a need for further institutional restructuring.
