Globalization of the labour market and the impacts of the digital age have increased the demand for internationally comparable occupational data, but there are still differences between classifications of occupations used in national contexts with the ISCO. We, Public Employment Services need ones that are as close as possible to the ISCO to meet the above-mentioned demand.

Classifications of occupations are used for the collection and dissemination of information from various sources such as population censuses, labour force surveys and other household surveys, employer surveys and other sources. They are also used by PESs and other government agencies in activities such as matching jobseekers with job vacancies, educational planning, reporting of industrial accidents, administration of workers’ compensation, and the management of employment-related migration.

PES, in particular, may wish to include descriptive or coded information on job content, skill requirements, linkages to national competency frameworks, and detailed occupational descriptions. This types of information are all of interest for vocational guidance and training, development of vocational training programmes, job placement services, or analysis of occupation-specific needs.

 

There are thousands of occupations available in the labour market and it is hard to get most of their information and to evaluate how they are impacted by digital age. Choosing the most common ones, therefore, can be the best approach that PESs are mandated to do. WAPES, in collaboration with Vietnam PES organizes a conference on the theme: “The most common occupations in the labour market and their changing under the impacts of the digital age – The role of PES”.
