There will be no ready-made human capital in the future due to the constant labour market transformation, but self-made skills are possible, said Cedefop Director James Calleja at the European Training Foundation (ETF) high-level conference on changing skills for a changing world (Turin, 7-8 June).
Cedefop and Eurofound have joined expertise and resources to carry out the 4th European company survey. The survey will explore the strategies companies deploy to organise work, design jobs and manage human resources and skills to meet their business objectives and boost their performance.
A collection of 28 new analytical highlights focusing on skills anticipation in all EU-28 Member States, is now available on the Skills Panorama. The overviews mainly regard the existence of skills anticipation methods; the governance structure (which authority/ies are responsible); the level of stakeholders’ involvement; the dissemination of labour market intelligence and the level of the use of this intelligence in policy making and in decision making by target groups (see Figure for the example of the Dutch approach).

In this second instalment on the future of work, Cedefop's European skills and jobs survey reveals that more than seven in 10 adult employees in the EU need at least some fundamental ICT level to be able to perform their jobs; yet, about one in three of those employees are at risk of digital skill gaps.
