Abstract

This issue of Foundation Focus looks at job creation. The Great Recession has destroyed many jobs and the recovery has been shallow, with few new jobs being created. Where are new jobs going to come from? Eurofound looks at the care and education sectors as possible drivers of growth and at the skills needed for a greener economy. Foundation Focus also analyses where jobs were lost during the recession, both in terms of sectors and overall numbers. What do SMEs – who make up 99% of European companies – need to flourish and create employment? Public support for job creation has been ongoing in Europe, but has become refocused following the economic downturn.
