This report concentrates on other personal services and activities of households as employer of domestic personnel. Part I analyses recent relevant sector developments and trends and depicts the current state of play in the sector, with an emphasis on innovation, skills and jobs. The findings of Part I of the report combine original data analysis using Eurostat structural business statistics and labour force survey data with results from an extensive literature review of relevant already existing studies. The findings of Part I are based on the present and the recent past. The second part of the report is future-oriented and looks at sectoral developments and more specifically developments in skills and jobs in and towards 2020. The core of part II consists of plausible future scenarios and their implications for jobs, skills and knowledge. These implications have been analysed for various job functions. In a final part III, a range of main strategic options (‘choices’) to meet the future skills and knowledge needs is reviewed, including implications for education and training. The study concludes with a number of recommendations for the sector (individual firms, sector organizations, sectoral partners), education and training institutes and intermediary organisations, and last but not least, policy-makers at various levels, ranging from the EU to the local level.
