Eurojob expects that during the coming decades, due to ageing and dejuvenation, substantial shortages will arise in staff of a lower, secondary and technical education. To maintain economic activity and clout (and therefore employment) in the Netherlands, companies will increasingly have to look across borders and at least use the entire European Union to attract a flexible working shell.
Especially in logistics, retail, production, assembly, food, metal & technology, and healthcare, shortages in qualified and motivated employees are increasing.
This problem not only affects the Netherlands, but also many neighbouring countries. It is therefore not inconceivable that there will be a run on international staff in Western Europe in the future.
