Navigating difficult waters. Employability challenges and methodological innovations

Barbara Barabaschi, Licia Allegretta

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in rivistaArticolo in rivistapeer review


The paper presents the tools elaborated by European Union experts to make people employable in the context of global crisis and labour market’s needs transformation. The paper moves on two levels: the first, that of firms, presents results of some studies on the demand of competences in the short run in the services sector and, specifically, in that of green economy. The second level, that of individuals, presents some new tools aiming to support workers to evaluate the skill gap (O*Net Interest Profiler, O*Net Ability Profiler, O*Net Work Importance Profiler) and undertake the right actions to become employable. Results highlight the limited efficiency of innovative digital tools, if they are not founded on systemic integration and social inclusion.
