Underemployment: a skills utilisation perspective

John Sutherland

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

More than half of all employees believe that the skills they possess are higher than those required to do their present jobs. This is one of several findings reported in a research paper on "under-employment" in the current edition of the University of Strathclyde's Fraser of Allander Review published today. According to the author of the paper, John Sutherland of the Scottish Centre for Employment Research at the university, this provides further evidence that "under-employment" is as important a policy problem as "unemployment".
