White paper: An economic assessment of skill gaps on firm productivity

Share this page

London Economics has undertaken research for Filtered, providing comprehensive insight into employer demand for skills driven by skills gaps. Using the 2015 wave of the Employer Skills Survey (ESS), LE found that skills gaps have a significant effect on a number of business outcomes including losing business to competitors and increasing labour costs.

Being able to link skills gaps to tangible costs for business brings home the urgency of the problem, and importantly shows how to direct action to increase productivity.

In this assessment of skills gaps and productivity you will learn:

- Where in the UK skills gaps are most severe, and in which industries

- How skills gaps affect overall company performance

- What steps companies are taking to overcome these skills gaps
