Résumé

This report looks in detail at recent shifts in the employment structure at Member State and EU level, examining the main sectors and occupations that have contributed to job loss and job growth. It finds, for example, that in 2011–2013, the majority of net employment losses continued to occur in middle-paid and low-to-middle-paid jobs in construction and manufacturing. Employment growth remained resilient in high-paid, high-skilled jobs, and knowledge-intensive services have been the main source of this growth. The report also examines some of the likely drivers behind the changing employment structure: technological change, globalisation and labour market institutions.

    Moteurs de la récente polarisation de l'emploi et amélioration en Europe: «European Jobs Monitor» 2014

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Ce rapport se penche sur les récentes évolutions dans la structure de l'emploi au niveau des États membres et de l'Union européenne et examine les principaux secteurs et professions ayant joué un rôle dans la perte et la croissance d'emplois. Il conclut notamment que, durant la période 2011-2013, la majorité des pertes nettes ont continué à toucher des emplois à salaire moyen et à salaire moyen à bas dans les secteurs de la construction et de la production. La croissance de l'emploi a bien résisté pour les emplois à salaire élevé et hautement qualifiés et les services à forte intensité de connaissances ont été la source principale de croissance de l'emploi. Le rapport examine également certains des moteurs probables de l'évolution de la structure de l'emploi: l'évolution technologique, la mondialisation et les organismes du marché du travail.
