Labour Market & Employment

Labour Market & Employment

"The paradigm of labour policy is shifting from combating unemployment to shaping skill shortage."

Dealing with the socio-demographic decline in the labour force potential is the central challenge of the future. The current shortage of skilled workers is continuously expanding. Nevertheless, people will continue to be unemployed because their qualifications do not match the needs of the economy.
Wheredo we observe unemployment? Which regions are facing labour shortage and how can we deal with it? What can the main players on the labour market actually do to tackle skill shortage?

Prognos answers central questions on the future of the labour market and the development of unemployment in Germany. It reflects them on international experiences and develops policy recommendations for politics and society. In doing so, we see the securing of individual work and employability as well as the design of good work in companies as two sides of the same coin.
