Labour Market & Employment

Labour Market & Employment

"The paradigm of labour policy is shifting from combating unemployment to shaping the shortage of skilled workers."

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.

Where is unemployment? Where is there a labour shortage and how can we deal with it? What can the labour market players actually do?

Prognos answers the central questions on the future of the labour market and employment development in Germany, reflects these on international experiences and develops recommendations for action 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 the companies as two sides of the same coin.
