The most important determinants for future labour market trends is technological change. Although the evolution of digital technologies has already gained momentum, the main impacts of this new era of technological change remain largely in front of us. Given this, it is essential to understand what are the impacts caused by digitalization in the labour market. The objective of the work is to perceive a systematic review of the literature as the emerging digital technologies can influence the quality of the correspondence of the labour market. This understanding can allow an assessment of the spread of skills and persistence of unemployment, and if these situations are absent or slowed down or intensified by digitization. Evaluate the relevance of digitization for structural issues in the labour market, focusing on topics such as recruitment difficulties and skills shortages, persistent unemployment and changes in forms of employment. The relevant drivers of these identified structural issues can serve as a basis for the development of a region that is facing structural problems in the labour market caused by digitalization. In addition, it can assist a region that needs highly qualified human resources and is aware of the type of workers it wants to attract, as this identification helps to predict skill gaps and develop training. The conclusions can be used to align companies' strategies and public policies to generate greater efficiency and success in the search for sustainable growth solutions in a regional economy. Organizational, this can help promote the adoption of open innovation and even solve problems related to its applicability.
