    • Quantiative and Qualitative Approaches to Skills Monitoring in European Regions: Experiences from the European Network on Regional Labour Market Monitoring (EN RLMM) European Network on Regional Labour Market Monitoring – EN RLMM
    • European Network on Regional Labour Market Monitoring – EN RLMM European Network on Labour Market Monitoring – EN RLMM • Founded in 2005 – more than 400 members in all European countries • Labour market monitoring on regional and local level • Processes of mutual exchange and learning • Extension in 2009: Initiative for Networking Regional and Local Labour Market Observatories Across Europe • Current discussions: shifting roles and functions of regional and local labour market observatories in the past years
    • European Network on Regional Labour Market Monitoring – EN RLMM IWAK – Institute for Economics, Labour and Culture Since 2002: branch-related labour market monitoring systems (health and elderly care sector) in Hesse and Rhineland-Palatinate (Germany). Users: • Political and administrative decision-makers and social partners (federal state level) • Administrative districts and cities • Placement offices • Employers • Workers • Unemployed Skills monitoring is combining qualitative and quantitative approaches in order to: • Improve data quality • Satisfy user needs
    • European Network on Regional Labour Market Monitoring – EN RLMM Users of Labour Market Intelligence (LMI) User Groups Stakeholders on the regional and local level need forwardlooking information on the labour market – differences in the LMI demand and affinity of the user groups. PRIMARY USERS: members of the Public Employment Services SECONDARY USERS I: decision-makers (politics, administratio n), social partners, interest groups SECONDARY USERS II: employers, workers, un employed Source: EN RLMM/IWAK
    • European Network on Regional Labour Market Monitoring – EN RLMM Users of Labour Market Intelligence (LMI) User Groups‘ LMI Needs PRIMARY USERS: have strong affinity to LMI, possess the necessary skills their demand is covered Source: EN RLMM/IWAK SECONDARY USERS I: some discrepancies between the available LMI and their information needs; own data stocks - very specific needs not satisfied by available data SECONDARY USERS II: very specific needs, do not know about the existence/benefits of monitoring systems
    • European Network on Regional Labour Market Monitoring – EN RLMM regio pro – Hesse, Germany Background • Skills forecasting system established in 2007: supply of and demand for professions and qualifications on the level of administrative districts in the federal state of Hesse (5 years) • Close cooperation with the Hessian Social Ministry
    • European Network on Regional Labour Market Monitoring – EN RLMM regio pro – Hesse, Germany Example
    • European Network on Regional Labour Market Monitoring – EN RLMM regio pro – Hesse, Germany Example
    • European Network on Regional Labour Market Monitoring – EN RLMM regio pro – Hesse, Germany Example
    • European Network on Regional Labour Market Monitoring – EN RLMM regio pro – Hesse, Germany History Combination of quantitative and qualitative skills monitoring: • Since 2009, experts validating structural data (improving data quality) • Since 2012, focus groups in administrative districts validating forecasting data and developing strategies (satisfying user needs)
    • European Network on Regional Labour Market Monitoring – EN RLMM regio pro – Hesse, Germany Goals Two-fold responsibility in the process of labour market monitoring: • Support and guidance for secondary users for informed and advanced use of LMI (acquiring labour market competence) • Participatory approach in defining and implementing regional development strategies (involving the knowledge and experiences of existing regional/local stakeholder networks) LMI + knowledge about the interest/actions of the stakeholders in the region/on the local level =>> informed decision-making
    • European Network on Regional Labour Market Monitoring – EN RLMM regio pro – Hesse, Germany Approach • • Development of skills strategies on administrative district level Specific professions: locally relevant determinants for its prospective development LEAD: Skilled Labour Alliances of the Federal Employment Agency; Regional enterprise development agencies; regional development agencies; municipal employment centre FOCUS GROUPS : input of monitoring data as a starting point. Different perspectives, interactive discourse.
    • European Network on Regional Labour Market Monitoring – EN RLMM regio pro – Hesse, Germany Challenges of Participatory Strategy Development • • • To some extent, the participation depends on the lead in the administrative district. Trade union : often not enough personnel for participating in such processes. Employers: difficult to reach; (indirectly) represented through regional enterprise development agencies, industry and trade chambers, crafts chambers. More possibilities for involvement in the implementation phase.
