[fre] Effets des formations professionnelles et des aides à l'embauche : exploitation d'une enquête auprès d'employeurs belges par Bruno Van der Linden Au départ d'une enquête auprès d'employeurs, cet article estime tout d'abord l'importance des effets de perte sèche et de substitution engendrés par les subsides à l'embauche et les formations professionnelles de chômeurs. Il s'intéresse ensuite à l'influence de ces politiques sur la durée d'embauché. La fréquence de l'effet de perte sèche s'élève à 53 % pour les subsides à l'embauche et 35 % pour les formations. Les subsides à l'embauche engendrent de la substitution dans 35 % des cas. L'effet des politiques sur la durée d'embauché est sensible au choix de la distribution de l'hétérogénéité non observée. La participation aux politiques favorise un allongement de la durée d'occupation mais seul l'effet des formations subsidiées en entreprise est significativement différent de zéro. [eng] Assessing the Effects of Job Training and Hiring Subsidies Using a Survey of Belgian Employers by Bruno Van der Linden This article uses a survey of employers to estimate the outright loss effects and substitution effects stemming from hiring subsidies and job training for the unemployed. It then looks at the influence of these policies on job tenure. The frequency of the outright loss effect reaches 53% for hiring subsidies and 35% for job training. Hiring subsidies give rise to substitution in 35% of the cases. The effect of policies on job tenure is sensitive to the distribution chosen for the unobserved heterogeneity. Participation in employment policy measures promotes longer job tenure, but the effect of subsidised workplace training is the only one that is significantly different from zero.
