The article substantiates the impact of employment on the labor potential and the need for state regulation of employment. As a result of the analysis of employment in the Volga Federal District, it is determined that social relations are characterized by a high degree of influence of administrative management methods, a low level of social partnership and a weak control over compliance with labor legislation in small firms. Considering the segmentation of the labor market, the unorganized (competitive) segment dominates the Russian market, where neither employees nor companies have strong control over supply and demand, and individual transactions are concluded depending on the labor market situation. In this situation, the processes of regulating the quality of the labor force, both on the part of the hired worker and the employer, are hampered. The basic elements of the formation of the labor market at the regional level are determined. On the basis of empirical methods of economic research, the relationship between employment and the state of the labor potential is determined. At the same time, the key role is played by the conformity of the quality of workforce with the level of technological equipment of workplaces, complexity and scale solved in the workflow of tasks, which entails the development or degradation of the labor potential. The thesis about the structural change in employment, as the scientific and technical progress is developing, is substantiated. In order to identify the most significant factors affecting employment of the population, a regression-correlation analysis of parameters for two regions of the Volga Federal District was carried out, which showed that investments in fixed assets and average monthly wages exert a stronger influence on employment than in other parameters. On the basis of the data obtained, the authors have made a conclusion to increase investment for the modernization of enterprises and to create efficient jobs that enable them to develop their labor potential and ensure the growth of wages.
