2011 - present

Fully operational


Policy area

RETEL brings together relevant information on employment and education (Employment Observatory).

Policy goal

The goal is to provide LMSI and analysis for all interested parties. It aims to produce studies from existing data, in order to improve the overall knowledge base of the labour market situation. The RETEL regularly publishes a dashboard for the labour market. It also organises annual conferences related to the labour market and employment in Luxemburg.

Explicitly designed to address skill mismatch

Provides the LMSI and analysis (without measurement and identification, mismatch could not be identified).

Aim of policy instrument

Intended beneficiaries

All labour market participants.


Use of labour market intelligence

General analysis of labour market issues. Catering potentially to all users of LMSI.

Frequency of updates



No relevant changes were made with respect to the previous year.


No barriers.

Success factors

Broad involvement of institutions.

Slightly innovative

Processing LMSI into usable formats. Updating the information in quarterly reports for policy use.


Evidence of effectiveness

So far five regular reports have been issued on the situation of the labour market.

Engagement of stakeholders

Stipulated in law, quarterly update necessitate regular meetings/work.

Easily transferable

Analysis of the main LMSI using broad range of labour market organisations. It follows the general principle to provide a single organisation collecting information on LMSI that is easily accessible to all other stakeholders involved. Simple, but often not done.


It is likely to continue. So far it seems to provide a platform of exchange generating "processed" LMSI.
