The magazine of the Institute for Employment Research of the Federal Employment Agency
The magazine presents articles on the wide variety of research at the IAB. All editions focus on a specific topic. Additional short articles on various other research topics, on events at the IAB and its people, round off each edition. The IAB-Forum is published twice a year, and only in German.
Establishments in the manufacturing sector that export goods usually pay their employees considerably more than those that do not. IAB researchers have followed up the reasons for this in the current issue of the IAB-Forum, entitled "Vantage point. The establishment-level perspective of the labour market". The initially surprising findings show that the establishment-level perspective opens up important and sometimes unexpected insights into the labour market. To make this view of the labour market useful for research as well, the IAB Establishment Panel was launched in 1993. The results of the annual survey are of great advantage to in-house practice, political decision-making and also to the operative activities of the Federal Employment Agency – for instance when solutions are being sought on how to deal with shortages of skilled workers, aging workforces, the compatibility of family and career, framework conditions for employee participation, or the in-house use of integration subsidies.
Whatever topic arouses your interest in the current issue of IAB-Forum: it is worthwhile to see it through the eyes of the establishment!
The IAB-Forum is published only in German. Two selected articles of this edition have been translated into English.
