The report shows that new technologies do not only create or destroy jobs. More importantly, they change what people do on the job, and how they do it.
This reconfiguration of jobs will increasingly require individuals to leverage their "human advantage". People need to learn new skills that help them to adapt in ever-changing workplaces.
The report shows: digital skills and non-cognitive skills are common denominator of many of emerging jobs.
The report sheds light on the role of new technologies in facilitating the rise of new forms of work. It offers novel evidence on the nature, intensity, and challenges of platform work.
The report looks at the employment structure and dynamics in the EU over the past 15 years. One key finding is that the divide between and within EU countries remain large. In some cases it widens, especially between capital city and other regions.
