Labour market & Income

Social Policy

A good functioning labour market is vital for each country’s economy. Globalisation, migration and changing work patterns all influence labour markets, industrial relations and employment conditions. These changes make it necessary for governments and social partners to adjust their policies. At the same time, continuity in policies is essential in enabling employees and employers to adapt to labour market conditions in the short run.

Labour market issues concern the development of demand and supply of labour considering income, labour costs, work and care, free time, industrial relations and health aspects at work. Rapidly changing markets make it necessary for employers and governments to adjust strategies and be flexible in order to adapt to labour market conditions.

Ecorys provides policy oriented research and advise for governments and employers on labour market and income issues. We provide support to employers and government starting at orientation on the labour market and ending with evaluation of labour market policies and strategies.
