Samenvatting

Europe has begun to emerge from the prolonged slump caused by the global financial crisis in 2008 and exacerbated by the euro zone single-currency crisis in 2010–2011. In the last year, aggregate employment levels have risen faster than at any time since 2008. This, the fourth annual European Jobs Monitor report, looks in detail at shifts in the employment structure at Member State and aggregate EU level over 2011–2014. The objective is to assess the extent to which recent shifts are polarising, arising from a decline in mid-paid jobs, or upgrading as a result of growth in high-paid jobs. The analysis finds that the most recent pattern is more downward‑skewed, mainly as a result of stronger growth in less knowledge‑intensive services. The report also summarises the main findings from two other analyses of labour market shifts: one centres on developments in six European countries, while the other focuses on six non-EU countries.

    Upgrading of polarisatie? Wereldwijde langetermijnverschuivingen in de werkgelegenheidsstructuur: Europese banenmonitor 2015

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Europa begint langzaam te herstellen van de langdurige economische teruggang die in 2008 begon met de wereldwijde kredietcrisis en daarna binnen de eurozone door de eurocrisis van 2010–2011 nog verergerd is. In het afgelopen jaar is de totale werkgelegenheid sneller gegroeid dan op enig moment sinds 2008. Dit vierde jaarlijkse verslag in het kader van de Europese banenmonitor gaat uitgebreid in op de recente verschuivingen in de werkgelegenheid op Europees en lidstaatniveau in de periode van 2011 tot 2014. Het doel ervan is om te beoordelen in hoeverre recente verschuivingen polariserend zijn, als gevolg van de ‘inkrimping’ van banen met een modaal salaris, of juist upgrading veroorzaken, als gevolg van de groei van het aantal hooggeschoolde, goed betaalde banen. Uit de analyse blijkt dat het meest recente patroon meer een onevenredigheid in de laagte vertoont, met name als gevolg van een sterkere groei op het gebied van minder kennisintensieve dienstverlening. In het verslag worden tevens de belangrijkste bevindingen uit twee andere analyses van verschuivingen op de arbeidsmarkt samengevat: een daarvan richt zich op ontwikkelingen in zes Europese landen, terwijl de andere zich op zes landen buiten de EU richt.
