Indeed, very interesting research findings. The HD Anchor is currently in the process of launching a multi-country study to measure the cognitive, non-cognitive and technical skills in the working age population, as well as surveying employers to determine the extent to which they desire and value different type of skill sets when making hiring decisions. We have many challenges, ranging from ensuring skill measurements are international comparable, making decisions on whether to focus only on non-cognitive skills that are malleable, and, of course, disentangling issues of causality. We hope our research findings will shed light on skill mismatches and on the relative importance of different type of skills sets in the labor market.
