Executive summary of Global Employment Trends 2011

This year's Global Employment Trends report will be the first to assess how the world’s labour markets have been faring during the ongoing economic recovery and provide projections of employment and unemployment prospects for the world as a whole as well as the various regions.

The annual Global Employment Trends (GET) report provides the latest global and regional estimates of employment and unemployment, employment by sector, vulnerable employment, labour productivity and working poverty, while also analysing country-level issues and trends in the labour market. Taking into account macroeconomic trends and forecasts, the GET includes a short-term outlook for labour markets around the world.
