The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in much turmoil and insecurity around employment. Even people who previously enjoyed stable jobs have suddenly found themselves scrambling for work, especially in affected sectors like hospitality, retail, and travel. On the flip side, sectors like logistics, healthcare, and manufacturing seek to expand their workforce dramatically, offering new opportunities for jobseekers, but also new challenges for employers.
COVID-19 has triggered one of the worst jobs crises in memory. Public Employment Services (PES) need to find solutions to manage, control, and revive national labor markets. If not, poverty will increase, and inequalities will widen, with the economic effects felt for years to come. With more than 20 years of experience in the employment domain, WCC understands these challenges. WCC solutions enable PES, helping them to stimulate recovery and reduce the impact of the pandemic.

We began this series of blogs looking at governments’ strategic goals in labor management, and how Public Employment Services (PES) have a pivotal role in achieving and maintaining stable employment. Subsequent blogs described PES trends and how evolving search technology helped meet challenges in the employment market. But what are the critical elements needed for an IT employment solution capable of efficiently and effectively supporting PES? WCC has the answers.
