Thumbs down for Public Employment Service
The Swedish Public Employment Service (Arbetsförmedlingen) fails miserably in its job to match employers and job seekers on the Swedish job market, according to a new opinion poll.
The TNS Sifo polling institute asked 5,600 people about their level of confidence for a number of Swedish authorities.
The Consumer Agency comes out on top with the Tax Authority and the Institute for Communicable Diseases Control sharing second place.
For the second year running, the Public Employment Office ends up at the bottom of the list. But Director General Angeles Bermudez-Svankvist believes better ratings will come with time.
"If we are given 10-15 years we will do much better, because unemployment will have gone down and we will have a labour shortage," she told newspaper Svenska Dagbladet.
One of the big climbers in the list is Sida, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, while the National Agency for Education falls to a position close to the bottom.
