Michael Ward, president of the Birmingham Chamber of Commerce Group (BCCG), said that simplification of the initiatives to tackle unemployment would make a "significant difference" across the country.
With a complex programme of youth contracts, city deals, a work programme and work experience schemes, it is "no wonder" that employers and potential employees are confused about how to help people back into work, he explained.
Mr Ward added: "The Chamber urges the government to find a way to simplify the routes into the multitude of initiatives and to provide real financial incentives to encourage participation in them."
It comes after David Kern, chief economist at the British Chambers of Commerce, recently said it is important that the coalition follow through with reforms to the UK's planning system and makes bold moves on reducing red tape, making it easier for businesses to expand and create jobs.
