The employment and labour market statistics system (PLASTA) is an essential tool for regional employment centres. It makes it possible to process jobseekers' data, to follow up their files, to consult the current labour market offer and to manage and place labour market measures. In addition, this tool can be used to generate statistics from the data entered, and the cantonal authorities use it to process advance notifications for short-time working and bad weather compensation.
The progressive modernisation of the user interface, carried out in cooperation with the unemployment insurance implementing partners and the strategic development company adesso Schweiz AG, was implemented in five stages up until October 2021.
The new PLASTA interface is simpler and more user-friendly. Features include a more intuitive menu, adaptive design and a fast search function. Together, they will add value for employment centres. Along with other features, these functions will enhance efficiency and allow day-to-day work to be performed with a few clicks.
