Share Post:

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 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 2020, and to examine the demands of
the labour market for workers in 2021. After individual research was conducted
and results were presented by entity and Brčko District Employment
Services, a consolidated report was created to show the data at the level of
Bosnia and Herzegovina. In this context, this report relies on the consolidated
report, but thematically it deals with the questions from the questionnaire
which concerns the impact of COVID-19 on the labour market in Bosnia and
Herzegovina.
A stratified sampling approach was used, with activity (sector) and the size of
the enterprise as the key stratification variables. A total of 2,429 employers
at the level of Bosnia and Herzegovina were surveyed. Small enterprises prevail
in the sample (78.34%), which actually reflects the actual situation of the
economy. Medium enterprises make up 15.89% and big enterprises make up
5.76% of the sample.
