According to Statistics Estonia, There Are More People in the Labor Market than Before
When the pandemic broke out, it was accompanied by a lot of job insecurity. There were areas where the crisis did not lead to job losses, but there were also areas that are still not recovered. What is the situation now?
The information and communication sector has grown the most in the last two years, the number of employees was not reduced during the pandemic, it is on the rise. Accommodation and catering were hit hardest during the pandemic and have not recovered to this day.
Today, employment is also higher than before the pandemic. In November 2021, 646 000 people had a valid employment relationship, which is 14 000 more than in November 2019, when the coronary crisis had not yet begun.
In the new year, the situation is such that there are jobs in most fields of activity, it may happen that employment relationships are shorter and more precarious and employers have to take into account that there may be a shortage of labor.
