Labour places sustainable development in rural regions are determinate the stratification internal and external, from different management levels, environment. The environment factors constantly changeable and interdependent. The open labour places development process is not self-contained, there is need professional management of the process considering many factors, which can be ascribable to the internal (near and distant) and external (near and distant) environment (regional, national, EU) factors groups. The aim of this research is to identify the factors of labour places sustainable development in Lithuanian rural regions. There were used analysis and synthesis, graphic depiction, logical and systematic thinking, comparison, SWOT, structured interviews, deep personal interviews, abstraction and other methods. In the research were analysed labour places sustainable development theoretical aspects, defined labour places sustainable development, identified determining factors of labour places sustainable development in Lithuanian rural regions, was find the possibilities for sustaining development of labour places and the benefits of rapprochement between working positions and place of residence. Interaction of all above factors (synergy) must be considered during the investigation along with the above factors in order initiate development and employment cycle of rural areas.Executed pilot SWOT analysis of job development in rural areas has shown that there are some restricted ranges of issues that abandon job development in rural areas. Liberality of labour forces, non-focused employment of the above resources, and lack of competitive advantage relevancy needed for territory development, absence of sustained and balanced development could be named as common subjects of all municipalities. For a long time workplaces and employment rates have been non-core preferences in case of decision making and implementation of strategic solutions, social and development policies. Implementation of measures, established within Lithuanian rural area development programmes, has been directed towards solution of problems occurred long time ago (not to development of countryside potential). Yet the problem could conceal the opportunity, not all figures involved in the development of rural areas could identify it, it means that long-term development of rural areas could show only initial signs of sustained development, and the balance between other development directions and (or) targets, i. e. economic, social and environmental, used for implementation of active work places is rather weak.Integrated employment development remains the main challenge based on the ongoing monitoring and responding to external changes. Research area is broad and complicated, but it is necessary to investigate vitality and resilience of labour places, the degree of labour places sustainability in the future.
