Labor reallocation needs triggered by COVID-19: Challenges and Policy Priorities

About this event

The COVID-19 pandemic is likely to have long-lasting effects in the labor market, which may require a significant reallocation of workers across sectors and occupations with associated upskilling and reskilling needs. The current endowment of skills, as well as some features of labor market institutions, may become bottlenecks limiting the extent of reallocation needed to accommodate the shifts in labor demand caused by potential shifts in preferences and business practices. Setting up the right policy response should help smooth the adjustment process and minimize mismatches in the labor market and employment loss.
