3rd IDSC of IZA/University of Luxembourg Workshop: Matching Workers and Jobs Online - New Developments and Opportunities for Social Science and PracticeBonn, Germany
Like many forms of economic exchange, the process of matching workers to jobs has rapidly migrated online in the last two decades. Thus, understanding how online labor matching mechanisms work; how they affect economic outcomes like employment, wages, and inequality; and learning how to take advantages of the ‘big data’ that are generated by online markets all have important implications for the future of labor.Madrid, Spain
Leaders of the employment and recruitment industry, policymakers, academics, HR practitioners and trade unionists from around the world will come together with a single purpose: to exchange views on how to steer a labour market in transformation.
Over lunch, local and international press were introduced to IZA World of Labor as a rich resource for journalists writing about labor economics-related topics.
There were two short panels, followed by a Q&A. These were:
- The Link between Skills and Labor Markets, with Education Minister Jaime Saavedra-Chanduvi, the acting vice president for poverty reduction and economic management at the World Bank;
- Evidence-Based Labor Market Policies with the Minister for Employment Promotion Edgar Quispe.
The lunch followed the 9th Annual Conference on Employment and Development, in partnership with IZA and the World Bank (25-26th June 2014), and a policy day on Education and Labor Markets (27th June 2014).
