According to the Employment Agency's labor market forecast for 2019-2020, employment is expected to increase in Kronoberg County. In total, there will be 1 800 new jobs during the forecast period, according to the Public Employment Service.
– Despite a certain dampening, a continued high need for labor is expected in Kronoberg County and increased employment. At the same time, the problem remains with a significantly higher unemployment among people with preschool education compared to those with higher education, says Valdete Hashani, labor market analyst at the Employment Service.
However, it is difficult for companies to find staff with the right skills.
