The Future of Work in Europe

The McKinsey Global Institute has published new research into employment trends in Europe and how these trends might play out in the next ten years.

The Future of Work interactive map examines and classifies 1,095 local labor markets across Europe. On this map regions of Europe are colored to show what type of employment cluster most effect employment trends in the area. You can also click on each of these regions to learn more about how the job market might grow or fall over the next decade and which sectors of the job market in the area are predicted to shrink and grow.

The McKinsey report explores how geographical and economic factors may effect the economic trends in each of Europe's regions. Economic factors, such as increasing automation and changing occupational trends, and geographical factors, such as the increasing geographical concentration of employment will effect employment trends differently in each of the mapped regions. If you select an individual region on the map you can view the McKinsey reports prediction for job growth in the area (2018-2013). You can also read an overview of the types of jobs which are predicted to see employment growth in the region and the types of jobs which are likely to decline.

Regions on the map which belong to the same type of employment clusters may have widely different predictions in the growth or fall of the labor market. This could be because of local differences in innovation opportunities and available workforce skills. You can learn more about how changes in employment trends will effect the job market in the different regions of Europe in the full McKinsey report The Future of Work in Europe.
