LABOR COMPETENCY- Labor market researcher Nils Martin Stølen in SSB emphasized the need for health workers, teachers and economists in the near future. -“More employees with vocational secondary school will also be needed,” said Stølen in an article on vg.no.
Stølen also pointed out that there will be a decrease in the need for unskilled labor and an enormous increase in the need for engineers in the coming years. NAV Business Survey, which is conducted each year, had previously revealed that there is a shortage of more than 8,000 engineers, civil engineers and IT personnel in Norway.
- “Many engineers will soon retire, and there is a need to replace many of these. The labor market will always fluctuate from year to year, but there is reason to believe that the general demand for engineering and IT personnel will be high,” says CEO of NAV Erik Oftedal to VG.
