Labour market developments
The labour market is changing rapidly. In times of Corona this is only more noticeable, but even before the pandemic this was already the case.

What we do know is that certain competencies are becoming increasingly important. The changing labour market requires adaptability and the ability to quickly acquire information. Social skills are also becoming increasingly important.
