EBA Western Ukrainian Office together with Lviv Consulting Group keep monitoring the labor market of Western Ukraine and are happy to share with you results of the 12th Wave, Western Ukraine Labour Index, conducted in July 2017.
The labour market Index in July 2017 went down by 0.30 since February 2017 (2,78). The index keeps falling down for two waves in a row. The neutral environment of the labor market in February gradually turned to be rather unfavourable for employers in July.
The survey participants believe the pool of qualified candidates in the market is shrinking, in particular due to labor migration, the competition for talents increases, salary expectations of potential job seekers are too high and employers are forced to increase pay.
