Abstract

A key element of European policy is the emphasis on boosting employment and maximising its quality – creating ‘more and better jobs’ – with a view to shaping a competitive, knowledge-based economy. Over the period 1995 - 2006, considerable growth in employment took place in most European countries. This report seeks to determine if those jobs created were also of better quality. It analyses the level of employment growth across the wage spectrum in each Member State by sector, occupation, type of contract, and gender. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    The period 1995–2006 witnessed a big turnaround in the employment trends across most of Europe. This leaflet presents an overview of the main results of the research into employment expansion over a ten-year period, which forms the first part of the 2008 report from the European Restructuring Monitor (ERM). The second part of the ERM report complements this decade-long perspective, focusing on the patterns of restructuring across the EU and Norway for the year 2007, and the extent of consequent job creation and job loss.
