What are the latest labor market trends and developments?

The labor market is changing constantly. New trends and developments are emerging thick and fast. Brainport Eindhoven offers several ways to stay informed about the latest developments in the labor market.

The current labor market in Brainport Eindhoven

The Brainport region is experiencing a shortage in tech and IT professionals. We have more IT and tech jobs available than Dutch talent to fill those jobs. Since the unemployment rate in the Netherlands is currently very low, the only way to solve the current shortages in the labor market is by attracting international knowledge workers and students.
 

Technical and social

You need to have technical knowledge if you want to work within our region. Within Brainport, an increasing number of technicians is hired for jobs outside the tech sector, such as data analysts and programmers, who prove their value in other sectors. Another occurring trend is that social skills are becoming more important, especially for better communication with clients.

 

Automation & skills

Due to the increasing use of automation and robotics, a lot of work is being saved and/or is changing. Jobs are disappearing and replaced by new – yet unknown – ones. We need talents who are able to adapt to this changing labor market in a flexible manner. We also need employers who look at the potential of their (new) employees from a different perspective. Based on skills instead of position and resume. This enables them to see the potential of people who do have great affinity with technology but lack the necessary skills. Those skills can be learned on the job.
 

Regional labor market
