The first research results are expected in early 2020

On December 5, 2019, in the organization of the Federal Employment Service and the Helvetas My Future Foundation, a professional training workshop was held regarding the application of the new survey methodology and the interviewing process for representatives of the Federal Employment Service and cantonal employment services in order to prepare for a better quality Employer Survey 2019.

Through the Employers Survey 2019, the Federal Employment Service begins researching the labor market in the FBiH. On a sample of 1,200 employers (small, medium and large enterprises) from the entire Federation, representative data on employment trends in the FBiH economy are expected.

Following last year’s recommendations, the methodology and questionnaire for employer surveys have been significantly improved.

The theoretical part of the training, which consists of two modules – Production Technology and Clothing Design, is delivered through video conferences for all 14 participants, while the practical part of the training takes place at MaxTex’s facilities in two groups of 7 participants, with respect to all epidemiological measures prescribed by the Cantonal COVID 10 Crisis Headquarters.

The results obtained will serve to enhance the activities, projects, services and cooperation of Public Employment Agencies with employers. The first research results are expected in early 2020.

At the workshop, tablets and external batteries were provided for the needs of the Survey as a donation from the Helvetas My Future Foundation to the Federal Employment Service.
