After more than ten years of uninterrupted growth, the number of people in employment in 2020 fell by -0.4% (Germany -1.1%) compared to the previous year due to corona. In a comparison of the federal states, Berlin recorded the smallest decline here. But the labor market in the capital region is increasingly recovering from the corona crisis. While the number of unemployed and workers on short hours is falling, the number of employees subject to social insurance contributions is increasing.
In 2021, the number of people in employment in Berlin increased by 0.9 percent to more than 2 million compared to the previous year. That is over 18,000 people more than in 2020. Thus, Berlin has the highest percentage increase of all federal states. However, the average number of unemployed in 2021 was still higher than in the first year of the pandemic, 2020.
The multi-cultural metropolis of Berlin continues to attract more and more international talent: in October 2021 approx. 736,000 foreign nationals lived in the capital. They make up 20 percent of the population. Berlin is interesting for everyone: for young university graduates and career starters as well as experienced professionals.
