European Jobs Monitor 2014

(CC) coleydude / FlickrEurofound has just published “The European Jobs Monitor 2014.” The study examines the employment structure at the EU, analyzing the main sectors and occupations that have contributed to job loss and job growth.

According to the report, 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 the growth.

The study also examines some of the drivers behind the changing employment structure: technological change, globalization and labour market institutions.
