Rapid labour market changes leave too many workers at risk of losing their skills. What can we do to prevent this? Our latest briefing note investigates.

Workers whose skill development has stagnated or deteriorated are more likely to worry about losing their job, have a temporary contract and have less chance of career progression. This briefing note – published in English, French, German, Greek, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish – examines which groups are most vulnerable to skills obsolescence, how the phenomenon is related to the economy's pace of change, and what companies and policy makers can do about it.
