Zoom-in video podcast
The Dutch labour market is facing unprecedented shortages, calling for a skill based economy in which skill based matching, reskilling and upskilling are common practices.

In this two-episode Zoom-in podcast series, the skill based economy is discussed in-depth with six guests involved in the Passport for Work project: labour market professor Ton Wilthagen, employer Koen Melis, UIA Expert Ronald Lievens, product developer Arjan Smeulders, and psychometric experts Ard Barends and Alec Serlie.

Episode 1: Why is it important? What is the relationship with labour market tightness & mismatch, and what are the benefits for job seekers, employers and the society at large?

Episode 2: How do you apply skill based matching in practice: how do you measure and match skills?
