The value of skills: An evidence review
The Value of Skills: An Evidence Review shows that prosperity depends on employment and productivity growth and that skills are an essential part of achieving higher levels of both. Skills are of economic value to individuals as workers; to the organisations that employ them; and to the country as a whole through greater productivity and competitiveness. There are also considerable social benefits that accrue to individuals and communities which aid the development of a more equitable and better functioning society. The Value of Skills helps to make ‘the business case’ for individuals, employers and governments to invest in skills and training.
