18 IFC Jobs Study: Key Findings Investment Climate, Infrastructure, Access to Finance and Skills & Training are critical factors for job creation in developing countries. Job creation effects are often much larger in supply chains and distribution networks of IFC clients (“indirect ‟ jobs) than “direct ‟ jobs created in IFC client companies. Company size matters.
