What We Do
This report analyses key job quality indicators, devoting particular attention to informality, underemployment and temporary employment. It also takes stock of structural sectoral shifts and ageing, two long-term trends likely to add further pressures on the labour market. Key findings include: (1) global economic growth has rebounded and is expected to remain stable but low; (2) global unemployment remains elevated at more than 190 million; (3) vulnerable employment is on the rise; (4) the pace of working poverty reduction is slowing; (5) significant variations in employment outcomes continue to exist between regions and countries; (6) inequalities in labour market outcomes persist; (7) looking ahead, the projected structural shifts to the service sector could create complex pressures on job quality; and (8) an ageing population will add further pressure to future labour market challenges.
