Abstract
The article presents the results of a study of changes in the regional labour market, resulting from the introduction of digital technologies, which are not only able to replace human labour, but also turn the means of access to information into the means of controlling physical processes. It is demonstrated, what social and economic risks in the structure of demand and supply are relevant to the transition to a new technological order in a region with high scientific and technical potential. The object of the research is the labour market of the St Petersburg agglomeration, numbering more than four million people, with a high proportion of intellectual migration. The purpose of the research is a qualitative and quantitative assessment of the structure of supply and demand in the regional labour market, as well as the formalization of changes occurring under the influence of digital technologies. In addition to traditional methods of statistical analysis and observation, in particular, the analysis of time series characterizing the dynamics of demand and supply of employees, asymmetric analytics of sectoral labour market transformations is used. The results of the study of the modification of the regional labour demand model are given, associated with the disaggregation of the organizational structures of companies, the emergence of part-time workers, the desire of high-tech businesses to reduce transaction costs, primarily labour costs. The directions of transformation of the professional activities of employees in a number of professions, that are actively changing under the influence of digital technologies towards intellectualization of activity, have been determined. A three-component model of demand in the regional labour market is justified, combining the parameters of digital competencies, target parameters of regional development and a matrix for generating competency data.
