This report is prepared within the implementation of the project “Strengthening the capacity of the labour market institutions by improving of labour market research methodology”, funded by EU-IPA. In addition to this report, two thematic reports are prepared on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the labor market in BiH and the report “Women in the Labour Market 2020/2021”.
At the end of 2020 and the beginning of 2021, the Federation Employment Service, the Employment Service of Republika Srpska and the Employment Service of the Brčko District of BiH conducted a labour market research using a mutually agreed methodology, including a survey questionnaire. The aim of the research is to look at the current situation in terms of the challenges that employers faced in the previous period, and to examine the needs of the labour market for workers in the coming year.
Also, the aim of this research is to harmonize the research methodology, so that nationwide trends can be created without interfering with the competencies of individual institutions. This report is a consolidated overview of the research results at the level of Bosnia-Herzegovina, and includes exclusively the data produced by the Employment Service of Republika Srpska, Federation Employment Service and Employment Service of Brčko District of BiH.
