Labour Market


The labour market governs many areas of employment, including recruitment, redundancy and pay intentions. You’ll find here information on labour supply, labour costs, skill shortages, skills, unemployment, job creation, employment, mobility, economy, RPI and cost of living.

There are other pages for: HR and the economy and talent management.
