The researchers report on the development of a tool and a method which help employers to better assess current and future needs of employees. The first experiences with the tool and method, among nine employers in the Eemsdelta-region (in the northern Dutch province of Groningen) are positive. Information about personnel has become more specific, muta¬tions were recorded, and economic and technological developments in¬fluenced the expected demand for personnel. The intended effect of the improved information is that unexpected shortages in personnel would occur less frequently. Other regional partners on the labour market (such as local and regional labour market authorities, educational institutions and job seekers) will also profit when employers are ready to share their information and make it available for analysis on a regional level. As a re-sult, the regional labour market will become more transparent. Based on the pilot, a monitoring program for possible future job openings has been introduced for employers in the entire Groningen labour market region
