Samenvatting

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.

    Bepalende factoren voor de recente polarisatie en upgrading op de arbeidsmarkt in Europa: Europese banenmonitor 2014

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Dit verslag gaat uitgebreid in op de recente verschuivingen in de werkgelegenheid op Europees en lidstaatniveau. Onderzocht worden de belangrijkste sectoren en beroepen die hebben bijgedragen aan banenverlies en banengroei. Er wordt bijvoorbeeld geconcludeerd dat in 2011-2013 het nettobanenverlies zich grotendeels bleef voordoen bij werknemers die in de industrie of de bouw een modaal en laag tot modaal inkomen verdienden. Wat de goedbetaalde en hooggeschoolde banen betreft, bleef de werkgelegenheidsgroei veerkrachtig, en kennisintensieve dienstverlening was de belangrijkste bron van deze groei. In dit verslag wordt ook een aantal factoren onderzocht die waarschijnlijk bepalend zijn geweest voor recente verschuivingen in de werkgelegenheidsstructuur: technologische verandering, globalisering en arbeidsmarktinstellingen.
