On 7 July the OECD launched the 2020 edition of the Employment Outlook, the OECD’s annual report on jobs and employment in OECD countries. Each edition reviews recent trends, policy developments, and prospects. The 2020 edition looks at the impact of COVID-19 on (un)employment in OECD countries.

There is a concern that not all workers and firms are equally well equipped to work remotely, and that this will negatively affect those who do not have the skills to work in a digital workplace. In addition, measures taken to limit the spread of the virus might have created a momentum for firms to invest in automation. In this context, reskilling is more essential than ever to ensure that workers from the hardest hit sectors can transition to other jobs or sectors.
