In cooperation with the University of Kingston's Centre for Research in Employment, Skills & Society (CRESS), Cedefop held a workshop on Skill mismatch and firm dynamics on 27 April in London.
The aim of the workshop was to examine what companies do to make sure their employees have the right skills – both at the recruitment phase, and during the course of employment.
The workshop, which was intended to frame the argument for an upcoming Cedefop study, focused on human resource management and training practices such as staff appraisal, job design and in-company training, and discussed how such practices can minimise skills gaps and mismatches. It also examined the links between practice and EU policymaking in the field of skill development.
