THE SKILLS MISMATCH
Skills Mismatch is defined as the gap between an individual’s job skills and the demands of the job market; it has become a central challenge for Europe, affecting all layers of society, from the productivity and efficiency of businesses to the current and prospective welfare of youth.
Within this report we have examined the extent of the mismatch phenomenon across Europe, identified the contributing factors and provided a series of recommendations directed at decision makers and various stakeholder groups.
In 2011 ThinkYoung, in collaboration with OFMN, engaged in a large scale survey and analysis of 868 respondents from 48 countries, encompassing 16 different languages.
Our report was released on the 10th October at the Bibliotheque Solvay, Brussels;
forming a part of the OFMN Roundtable.

Accompanying the report, our ThY/Lab team have compiled a documentary film,
involving 6 individuals of 6 different nationalities, providing insights and opinions
about the mismatch issue in their various domestic countries.
