The third quarter was a hopeful one for the labour market, according to new figures from Statbel, the Belgian statistical office. In comparison to last year, more unemployed people find work. Also inactive people are more often looking for work or starting a new job.
For the employed, we see few differences compared to the previous quarters. However, the percentage of employed people who keep their job is still slightly lower, especially among young and older people. Statbel publishes today the transitions on the labour market between the third quarter of 2020 and the third quarter of 2021.
