Global problem jobs

According to to the report : 2011 Talent Shortage Suvey Results, published by Manpower (NL), are there mismatches in the global supply and demand in the labour market. The global labour market is heavily out of balance. The survey was conducted among more than 35.000 employers in 36 countries.

Structural problems in filling vacancies.
Worldwide, 31 percent of employers has structural problems in filling vacancies. From Japan to South Africa, from the Netherlands to Peru. Many employers did not succeed, even with the current unemployement, to find the right people for important jobs.

The top five of countries with finding the right employees are:
1 Japen (76%)
2 Brazil (64%)
3 Argentina (53%)
4 Singapore (53%)
5 Poland (51%)

The best matches are found in the following countries:
1 Ireland (4%)
2 United Kingdom (9%)
3 Norway (11%)
4 United States (14%)
5 Spain (15%)

Labour crisis
90 percent of the surveyed employers say that it are candidate-specific reasons why they are not able to supplement the critical shortages: lack of skills or not enough experience. The combination of a surplus of available people and also a shortage of suitable talent will lead soon to a crisis on the labour market.

Labour solutions
1. Re-formulation of job descriptions,  with more focus on the critical requirements in addition to developing the skills.
2. Indivual training programs instead of company-wide training programs.
3. Training programs between companies or branches.
4. Cooperation between businesses, schools, governments and individuals in education.

  1. I agree with the labour solutions in your blog. If companies can’t find the right people for working with them, they can offer them a training program. It’s also better for the labour market in the own country. They don’t need to get employees from another country, and in this way the unemployment rate of a country will decrease.
    Another thing is that it doesn’t cost the government a lot of money cause there are less people who need social services.

  3. I agree that individual training programs will have a positive influence on the labour market. A lot of people don’t really now what to study and choose just a direction. After their education they enter a company but they don’t have the specific properties to fulfill a high level in the company without training. Because of individual training programs between companies and branches, or not, the skills of working people will improve and these people will be able to fulfill the specific requirements of a job. Another good solution is to create the cooperation between companies and business or school programs. On this way people can improve their knowledge in a specific direction. This leads to possibilities for the person but also for the company.

  4. I also agree with your labour solution, training is a very helpful and positive way of preparing and moulding employees in to their job well. There are numerous benefits that training can provide such as; increasing productivity, creating a safe environment, boosting employee engagement and in turn efectiveness and innovation.
