The paper presents a project based on the complex case management model aimed at improving the labour market position of permanently unemployed clients. The aim of the case management is to improve the employee skills and capabilities of the clients in order to assist them in getting a job on the open labor market. The model builds on fast, action-oriented interventions, and the principle of the voluntary participation of clients. The process is time-limited, which the goal of reaching certain developmental objectives during a defined time period. We present a case study as an example of this model.
The expected future impact of the fourth industrial revolution is a hotly debated issue in the literature. The majority of papers focus on quantifying the expected impacts on labour demand, or on a specific country, or on huge macro-regions – and the estimates differ widely. Our paper focuses on the impact assessment of Industry 4.0 on the expected structure of employment, wages and inequalities in Hungary. We built a static microsimulation model for our analysis, where the “EU Survey of Income and Living Conditions Hungary 2017” dataset was used as a starting point. Projections by the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (CEDEFOP) were used for policy simulations on future employment by sector and by occupational group for each European Union (EU) member state. The analysis also elaborates our own augmented vision about the expected labour demand changes and expected wage trends. Based on this information, the spill-over effects were calculated regarding wage structure and inequalities by sector, region and the highest educational attainment.
