Cedefop predicts major changes in the composition of the workforce in the decade ahead as coronavirus affects retirement decisions. Europe’s ageing working population, resulting in declining future participation rates, is accompanied by the end of the working life of the so-called baby boomers (born between 1946 and 1964), which are all expected to have retired by 2030.
Cedefop has just released its 2020 skills forecast, estimating the annual employment needs across sectors and occupations in the EU Members States (plus a few more countries) up to 2030.
According to Cedefop’s skills forecast, in the sectors with a medium-high and high impact of coronavirus on economic activity, around one-fifth to one-quarter of the new jobs expected to be created up to 2030 are at risk of automation. This amounts to around 1.4 million jobs at stake in the EU-27.
