Monitoring and forecastingin eSkills & Work
We have a long track-record in the skills and work monitoring, benchmarking and forecasting domain with the first empirical European level monitoring activities on telework and e-Work dating back to the mid-1980s and e-skills related monitoring and forecasting starting in the 1990s.
Already in 1998 empirica was the first research and consulting organization worldwide to develop a European online monitoring and benchmarking web portal on e-Work and e-Commerce (Benchmarking Progress on Electronic Commerce and New Methods of Work: www.ecatt.com). Besides the empirical data for monitoring and benchmarking progress throughout major European countries and the USA the portal offered a repository of around 100 best practice case studies and a series of policy-related recommendations. These activities have been and are being continued, results made available through different web portals and these remain to be unique in the world.
We have continuously developed and refined the methodologies for empirical measurement of demand and supply and forecasting. The results are used intensively for policy and strategy development and continue to constitute a basis for policy decision-making for governments and for industry including national governments and the European Commission but also large corporations operating globally. The monitoring and benchmarking services are offered on a continuous basis to policy and strategy development decision-makers at European and national level and decision makers in large, globally operating corporations.
