Labour Market Intermediaries, online talent platforms and the changing world of work
The World Employment Confederation-Europe and UNI Europa are conducting a joint project funded by DG EMPL that aims to carry out a mapping of existing online talent platforms and crowd-working intermediaries in order to assess their impact in the labour market and compare them with the characteristics and regulation of the temporary work agencies. The research will look into several dimensions of these online talent platforms and their contribution to the labour market and compare these with temporary agency work (TAW). CEPS and IZA have been subcontracted to perform the research. CEPS is the leader of the consortium.
