The growing importance of social skills in the labour market

Organisation for Economic Co-operation and DevelopmentBy . Last month, chatbot Rose won the 2015 Loebner Prize for artificial intelligence (AI) – an annual contest in which machines try to fool judges into believing that they are human. While Rose ranked the most human-like bot by three of four judges, it failed to fool any of them into thinking it was a real person. More...

World Indicators of Skills for Employment (WISE): new OECD database

Organisation for Economic Co-operation and DevelopmentBy . Skills are key determinants of prosperity and well-being. However, developing skills is costly and so these investments need to be made wisely. This requires good information about where skill development is most needed, how well the skills of individuals match those required in the labour market, and the returns to investments in skills in terms of economic and social outcomes.

How the Labour Market Drives Mismatch and its Penalties

Organisation for Economic Co-operation and DevelopmentBy . In a previous post, we showed how across countries that took part in the Survey of Adult Skills, 39% of workers are mismatched by field of study. These are workers who graduated from a particular field but work in another, unrelated occupation. We also showed that many field-mismatched workers are also over-qualified, leading to a large wage penalty and non-ignorable costs for economies. More...

Promoting quality apprenticeships: definition and key challenges

Organisation for Economic Co-operation and DevelopmentBy Glenda Quintini. Apprenticeships provide opportunities to build up new skills and knowledge both on and off the job. When they are of high quality, apprenticeships promote a smoother transition from school to work for young people, giving them a good start to their working careers. They do so by providing a good mix of basic competences and job-specific skills as well as valuable work experience. In addition, apprentices are usually able to earn a wage, even if small, while studying. More...

Are we getting it right? The importance of assessing and anticipating skill needs

Organisation for Economic Co-operation and DevelopmentBy Glenda Quintini. Recent empirical literature warns about the negative impact that skills mismatch can have on individuals and economies as a whole. At the individual level, over-qualification and over-skilling entail lower earnings, lower job satisfaction and a higher risk of unemployment relative to well-matched workers (OECD, 2015 (forthcoming); Quintini, 2011). At the aggregate level, skill and qualifications mismatch are associated with lower labour productivity within industries (Adalet McGowan and Andrews, 2015). More...

A picture of working students in OECD countries

Organisation for Economic Co-operation and DevelopmentBy Glenda Quintini. The combination of work and study has been hailed as crucial to ensure that youth develop the skills required on the labour market so that transitions from school to work are shorter and smoother. As a result, in the current context of record high unemployment rates, many governments have set out to encourage learning on the job, particularly when it comes as part of certified programmes such as vocational education and training pathways (VET) or apprenticeships. Despite this central role in current policy thinking, comparative statistics on work and study are hard to come by and information is patchy at best when it comes to the context in which most students work – crucially, whether there is a (formal or informal) link between their schooling and their job.
