The report takes a look back over the past thirty years, describing a profound alteration in our labour market system. A thorough historical review and present-day analysis underline a significant change in the thinking and practices that define how work is organized and managed. Zizys’ research indicates that the current system is not serving anyone. Key findings show:
- Job seekers cannot find work in their chosen fields, are forced to compete against over-qualified candidates, or are limited to short-term, insecure roles.
- Employees are stuck in dead-end jobs with little pay, no loyalty, no job security, no room for advancement, and an unclear career path forward.
- Employers aren’t getting the people they need, aren’t keeping the ones they’ve got, and have low levels of productivity.
