High-level group publishes report on impact of digital transformation on EU labour markets
Among their recommendations, the experts call upon different actors on the labour market to reduce structural skill gaps, especially for women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), workers at risk of automation and the low-skilled.
Personal learning trajectories should allow workers to acquire relevant skills throughout their careers in order to keep up with rapidly transforming, digital labour markets.
New labour relations should intensify and better organise dialogue of workers and social partners, especially in the platform economy.
Social protection against unemployment, sickness and other life circumstances should be accessible independent of employment status.
