During the ten years between 2009 and 2019, the proportion of full-time employees in the municipal sector in Norway increased from 48% to 55%, according to a new report.
Every year, the Municipal Sector’s organization (KS) publishes a report on the status of Norway’s municipalities and counties.
According to this year’s report, the proportion of full-time employees increased from 48% to 55% between 2009 and 2019.
However, there are major differences between the various service areas. The challenges are particularly great within the municipal health and care services. Most people who work in shifts work in the municipal health and care services. Only 26% of those who work in shifts had full-time jobs in 2019.
In its report, KS points out that the municipal sector is also facing radical changes in the years ahead, which include digital changes and new ways of solving tasks.
