Abstract. The purpose of the work is to analyze the directions of the state employment policy of the population. The methods of scientific research are used: formalization, comparison, deduction, statistical analysis. The article discusses the specifics of the implementation of state policy in the field of employment. The analysis of statistical data characterizing the dynamics of the main indicators characterizing employment, the proportion of people employed in the information and communication technology sector is carried out.  An analysis of the literature has shown the need for state regulation of the labor market, which is carried out through state-implemented programs aimed at reducing unemployment and increasing employment. It is established that the result of state regulation is the absence of sharp fluctuations in indicators characterizing the state of the labor market (with the exception of rural areas), including in conditions of economic and foreign policy instability. The creation of the necessary number of jobs can be ensured by attracting budgetary funds or third-party investment resources. In terms of regulatory regulation, special attention is paid to the national project “Labor Productivity and employment support”, which is aimed at stimulating labor productivity growth, removing unnecessary administrative barriers, and developing export potential. The results of the statistical analysis confirmed the absence of sharp fluctuations in statistical indicators. A deviation from the general trend was noted in 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, including the introduction of lockdown, an increase in mortality, and the bankruptcy of small and medium-sized businesses. Forecasting the level of employment and unemployment in the Russian Federation for 2022-2024 showed their insignificant changes. The authors came to the conclusion that an important direction in ensuring employment of the population in modern conditions is the active development of digital competencies among citizens.

Keywords: employment of the population, labor market, state policy, forecast of employment indicators, unemployment rate.
