The adoption of ICT by business has probably changed job requirements and, therefore, the skills and knowledge required of workers, as well as the way in which businesses organise their work. Given this, it is only to the extent that workers and businesses are able to adapt to these new requirements that there will be a positive effect on employment. In this regard, the work of researcher Pau Cortadas is based on the analysis of complementarities in the labour market, taking a microeconomic look at the overall effect of ICT and organisational and labour-related changes on the employment market.
