The European Monitoring Centre on Change (EMCC) is an information resource established to promote an understanding of changes in the world of work, employment and restructuring. Its work is supported by a Network of Eurofound Correspondents across all EU Member States and Norway.
Well-functioning labour markets are a prerequisite for making full use of the job creation potential of the economy as it emerges from the financial and economic crisis.
Eurofound monitors and analyses the implications of structural change in the economy for Europe’s labour markets and employment.
Featured – Labour market changes brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic
Work has begun drafting a report on the labour market impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic one year on. Using EU-Labour Force survey data up to the end of 2020Q4, the report will identify the categories of workers most affected by employment loss or working hour decline resulting from the public health crisis. This will be an opportunity to update the findings of the recently published report COVID-19: Implications for employment and working life which showed that younger workers, those on temporary contracts and low-paid female workers were those most exposed to the initial negative employment impacts of the crisis in mid-2020. The report is based on a collaboration between Eurofound and European Commission-JRC researchers and will be published after the summer.
