In the recent years, the number of resident foreigners represent 14.45 % of the total population of Catalonia. This region is mainly made up of small to medium sized companies. This means that they employ less than 250 employees. But we know that a majority of these have less than 100 employees.
In the past years, the employment rate has gone up higher than the unemployment rate. Between October 2013 and September 2014, there was a yearly increase of 11.75% of contracts signed. The areas that demand the highest number of profiles include the food and beverage sector, health sector and the retail industry. The labor laws of Catalonia have made creating and ending contracts easier while also making the length of contracts more flexible.
