Employment in the Service Sector - Nature of its Structural Changes

Grażyna Węgrzyn

Abstract

The main goal of the article is identify the specific nature of structural changes taking place within the employment of service sectors across the European Union. Its spatial scope covers the twenty-eight European Union countries. The temporal scope of analysis covers the years 2008-2015. The study made use of service sector data available from the Eurostat database and classified as per NACE Rev. 2. The changes taking place in modern economies depend largely on changes taking place in the service sector. The changing role and function of services are reflected in the economic structure, and especially in the structure of employment. A modern service sector, i.e. the one in which the importance of knowledge-intensive services keeps growing, favours building a knowledge-based economy. The EU countries see a steadily increasing share of employment in the knowledge-intensive services, which at the same time decreases in traditional services.
