Addressing major labour market challenges in the world of work: Implications for promoting jobs


The world of work is being buffeted by a torrent of change, with multiple crises raising the magnitude and complexity of employment challenges to unprecedented levels.

Labour markets have been hit by disruptive mega-trends that weren’t on our radar just a decade ago.

These range from challenges we already know like gender disparities, informality and youth unemployment, to new and emerging issues, like climate change, increasing digitalization and the rapid rise of artificial intelligence.
