Future of work: Labour market transitions in the spotlight




Scoppetta, A. (2019). Future of Work: Labour Market Transitions in the Spotlight, EURO.CENTRE.REPORT. Vienna: European Centre.


The paper Future of work: Labour market transitions in the spotlight summarises key trends regarding individual transitions that are especially due to digitalisation and automatisation processes. It builds on desk research as well as inputs and discussions held during the meeting of the Employment Transnational Network that took place 12-13 December 2018 in Brussels, Belgium. The paper provides insights into current activities of Managing Authorities of the European Social Fund (ESF) and their partner organisations that aim at overcoming obstacles faced by individuals during their change process. Moreover, practices are presented and recommendations drawn for future activities within the ESF such as the need for adjustments of polices towards increased labour market transitions and the coverage of new forms of employment (e.g. platform work) within the existing labour market and social security schemes.
