Mestrado em Gestão de Recursos Humanos; A vantagem competitiva organizacional depende grandemente da capacidade de utilizar os recursos humanos. Como resultado, deve ser dada a devida importância às competências, qualificações e comportamentos desses recursos. O sucesso organizacional depende desse alinhamento, e de uma estratégia que envolva o mundo operacional e o mundo individual. Como foco principal, este relatório visa a criação de um projeto-piloto de Avaliação de Desempenho para o Departamento Logístico do Grupo Efcis, através da análise dos dados recolhidos do instrumento de Análise e Descrição de Funções, criado para esse efeito. No entanto, por via do mesmo instrumento, foi possível a obtenção de dados relevantes acerca de outros departamentos. Com base numa amostra de 33 participantes, conseguiram-se obter resultados consideráveis sobre as percepções das competências e da importância do trabalho para os colaboradores analisados, dando uma ideia do panorama geral dos departamentos.; Organizational competitive advantage depends largely on the ability to activate and use their human resources. As a result, it is of great importance to consider the competences, qualifications and behaviors of those resources. Organizational success depends on that alignment and on a strategy...

A disparity exists in the educational qualifications of dental assistants working in various public and private institutions in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The aim of this study was to assess the influence of professional and personal characteristics on job satisfaction among dental assistants. A cross-sectional survey was performed among dental assistants using a 24-item self-administered questionnaire. Multinomial logistic regression was used to assess the relationship between overall job satisfaction and other variables. The overall response rate was 72.1%. Factor analysis suggested that five underlying factors were related to job satisfaction. The mean score for overall job satisfaction was 3.86 (satisfied) out of 5. Among the work environment factors, the highest mean score, 4.26 (satisfied), was obtained for quality of service, and the lowest mean score, 2.78 (neutral), was obtained for the perception of income. The income and general prospects of the profession was significantly associated with overall job satisfaction. This study suggests that for dental assistants, professional and personal life, quality of service, perception of income and prestige and self-respect are important factors for job satisfaction. Despite differences in professional formation standards...

The Bulgarian labor market has seen remarkable improvements in recent years and has contributed to strong economic growth. The benign environment for job creation is now changing, as the global economic crisis impacts on labor market demand in Bulgaria. Compared to the EU27 averages, activity and employment rates have remained low, and Bulgaria has significant untapped domestic labor reserves. Bulgarian pupils in school also do not acquire the necessary skills and competencies to compete in a high innovation economy. Continued available vacancies suggest that skills shortages remain a barrier to employment even during the crisis and measures to retrain and up-skill the unemployed and those at risk of lay-off is an important policy direction for the short-term. In light of Bulgaria s demographic decline over the coming decades, medium-term growth and convergence require sustained increases in labor productivity and investments in human capital. Short-term measures during the economic crisis ideally combine efforts to keep workers in employment through temporary publicly subsidized short-working hour schemes as well as the use of unemployment benefits and measures to accelerate transitions from old to new jobs. The economic crisis is an opportune moment to address skills shortages both to tackle unemployment and to help the recovery in the short-term and to promote the foundation for medium-term economic growth and convergence. Looking at the medium term...

This report addresses a fundamental question facing policy makers in Tajikistan: is the current level of worker skills hindering employment outcomes? Using a unique household survey, the study finds that skills are valued in Tajikistan’s labor market, yet skills gaps persist. Jobs have been created in more knowledge-intensive occupations and in the service sector as opposed to the more traditional manual jobs, and employment outcomes are stronger for workers with better skills. Analysis of worker skills shows that workers with better cognitive and non-cognitive skills are typically more likely to have the highly sought-after formal sector jobs; and in fact make more frequent and intense use of mathematics and reading skills on the job. Furthermore, workers with better non-cognitive skills tend to become supervisors. The study finds that there are large variations in observed skills among those with the same level of educational attainment, indicating that formal education is failing too many people even though skills are developed during different stages in the life cycle and a host of actors are involved—families, for example, play a central role. The report’s conclusion is that the government could shift the focus from providing access to educational institutions and instead focus on providing the skills (cognitive...

Solomon Islands has undertaken a comprehensive assessment of the strength of its workforce development (WfD) policies and institutions to support these initiatives and enhance evidence based dialogue on their implementation. This assessment has been based on the World Bank s Systems Approach for Better Education Results (SABER) systems benchmarking initiative, under which a suite of analytical tools have been developed for important education subsectors, including WfD. Both the process of carrying out the SABER WfD assessment and this report are intended to strengthen the existing deliberative processes on the major system reforms. The tool is based on an analytical framework that identifies three functional dimensions of WfD policies and institutions: (1) Strategic framework, which refers to the praxis of high level advocacy, partnership, and coordination, typically across traditional sectoral boundaries, in relation to the objective of aligning WfD in critical areas to priorities for national development; (2) System Oversight...

This paper extends the traditional static focus of research on the labour market assimilation of migrants in Australia by analyzing the dynamics of job search and actual time taken to find the first job after arrival in Australia. The Longitudinal Survey of Immigrants to Australia (LSIA) covers two cohorts of recent migrants to Australia that differ considerably in immigration selection criteria and other policy settings, as well as in the macroeconomic employment conditions at their time of arrival in Australia. This gives rise to very different early labour market outcomes for the migrants in these two cohorts; and this paper looks at one specific aspect of this differing outcome – the time taken to find the first job after arrival in Australia. ¶ We analyze the inter-cohort differences in migrant characteristics and job search behaviour, and explicitly model the duration of the time taken to find the first job in Australia for the sub-sample of migrants who were the Principal Applicants in their visa applications. Using a conventional proportional hazards model framework, estimation results are presented for a Cox model specification and for a parameterized version of the baseline hazard which permits a formal test of equivalent hazards faced by the migrants in the two cohorts of LSIA. ¶ We find that the hazard rates of time to first job are determined by pre-immigrant characteristics...

The present study examines the effect of rehearsal, job interest, and self-monitoring on judges' accuracy to detect deception in selection interviews. The study also investigated the effect of those independent variables on judges' accuracy in assessing applicants' personality and self-reported qualifications. Subjects participating as applicants in mock job interviews were randomly assigned to rehearsal and interest conditions. These "applicants" were interviewed for jobs they liked or disliked and either rehearsed or filled out a distracter questionnaire. Subjects at a different university watched videotapes of applicants and rated their honesty, personality, and qualifications. As predicted, judges assigned more positive ratings to applicants who rehearsed than to applicants who did not rehearse. Contrary to predictions, applicant rehearsal tended to have a beneficial effect on judges' detection of applicant deception, personality, and qualifications. Applicant self-monitoring and judges' gender also affected judges' accuracy. Theoretical and practical implications of results are discussed.

This report extends the initial analysis of the first wave of the Longitudinal Survey of Immigrants to Australia (LSIA) conducted in 1995. Most immigrants in the survey have been interviewed a second time, starting in March of 1995 (approximately 18 months after arrival), and it is now possible to begin to assess what has happened to them over the first year and a half of the settlement process.

The analysis is concerned with changes in immigrant labour market outcomes, and how these are related to, among other things, visa category, State/Territory of residence, age, gender, educational level, marital status, English language ability, and whether or not an immigrant visited Australia prior to migration. Extensive cross-tabulations are reported, and these results are supplemented with regression analysis.

Chapter 2 examines changes in the labour market status of immigrants. Both participation and employment rates are associated with location, demographic and human capital characteristics, and visa category. In particular, immigrants in Queensland have better outcomes than others, and English language ability is critical. So too are pre migration experiences – immigrants who visited Australia prior to migration have much more successful labour market outcomes than others. This latter finding is important because it has not received attention before...

The Australian Public Service and the Modern Discourse. Since the development of Western government in Australia, policymakers have struggled with how to interact with Indigenous Australians. The first discourses that framed policy concerned separation, and later segregation, between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. Over time, these discourses have evolved into the modern discourse of equality, where Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians are to be considered equal members of a greater Australian society. Since the development of the modern discourse in the late 1960s and early 1970s, the employment of Indigenous Australians in the Australian Public Service (APS) has been an important part of federal policy. As the public employer of the Commonwealth, the APS represents to many people the country's commitment to achieving its goals for Indigenous Australians. Diversity, employment, and service delivery are all key goals, and each is greatly influenced by the modern discourse. Challenges to Realizing the Goals of the Modern Discourse. One of the most pressing challenges to the Commonwealth's goals is historical employment disadvantage among Indigenous Australians. Indigenous unemployment is at least around 40 percent (SCRGSP 2005...

The study reviews recent labor market developments in Poland, examining the factors behind the rise in unemployment, and, proposing actions that should contribute to increased job creation rates. Its main purpose is to inform - based on research findings - on the policy dialogue regarding the current labor market situation in the country. Those main findings indicate that the rise in unemployment results primarily from an acceleration of job destruction, that begun with the wave of enterprise restructuring in the aftermath of the Russia crisis, and has persisted in part, because of an imbalance in the fiscal-monetary policy mix. It also finds that the recent rise in unemployment has highlighted important barriers in the transition from old, to new jobs. These barriers include a binding minimum wage, high taxes on labor income, limitations in the labor code, and a relatively easy access to early retirement, and other social benefits. Additionally, the problems with the ongoing restructuring of the Polish labor market have been compounded by an increase in new labor market entrants...

Although some progress has been made in the basic education sector in Pakistan, currently, less than 1 percent of the population aged 10 years and above is trained in occupational skills. This situation could be improved through an identification of employment opportunities, a provision of appropriate training, promotion of effective employment policy from the government, and a stronger linkage between those who are trained and a labor market. In order to identify what, when and where training and skills are needed and how skills are imparted, this paper analyses the results of the employer survey conducted in November 2009 towards 1,000 selected enterprises. The results of the survey will provide various benchmarks which can be used over time to: measure how Sindh Technical Education and Vocational Training Authority (STEVTA) and Benazir Bhutto Shaheed Youth Development Program (BBSYDP) can improve existing program outcomes, and to monitor changes in labor market demand so that STEVTA and BBSYDP can shift resources appropriately. Authors conclude this paper with eight findings and recommendations: 1) rising demand for skills indicates the need for skills program...

Employment and skills are at the core of Europe 2020, the European Union's (EU) competitiveness strategy, and are decisive for high productivity and sustained growth. Romania has overcome significant challenges on its path to EU membership and in the early years thereafter. However, the Romanian economy has recently come under pressure as a result of the economic crisis and because important reforms in employment and education have not yet been completed. The Europe 2020 Romania report discusses the key challenges currently faced by Romania in the area of productive employment, and proposes a set of steps the Romanian government could consider in order to reach the Europe 2020 targets. Skills remain a major challenge. In particular, there is insufficient provision of the higher level generic and technical skills needed for a modern and competitive economy, including skills for technological innovation and absorption of new technologies. While Romania performs comparatively well in terms of higher education participation rates...

Sri Lanka has been regarded as a model of a country with successful social policies, yet for decades it has faced major challenges in providing employment and satisfying other aspirations of youth. Although the labor force has become more educated, and this trend is particularly marked for youth, the main source of employment for both youth and adults remains the informal sector. Moreover, the importance of the informal sector as a source of employment has increased since the mid-1990s. On the positive side, unemployment declined in last decades, particularly for youth. The Sri Lankan government has continually acted on various fronts to address the youth unemployment problem. It has tried to improve and modernize Sri Lanka's general education system, which has long been criticized as too academic, and to increase the accessibility of training so as to promote the employability youth leaving school. Other actions included strengthening entrepreneurship programs and introducing career guidance and counseling and improving labor market information to help young people in their job searches and to guide human resource planning.

Cette thèse de doctorat porte sur l’évolution de la qualité de l’emploi des travailleuses et des travailleurs québécois entre 1997 et 2007. À partir d’une nouvelle typologie, nous analysons les changements dans la qualité de l’emploi des femmes et des hommes et l’impact sur l’écart entre les genres. L’originalité de cette thèse est qu’elle permet de jeter un regard multidimensionnel sur la qualité de l’emploi en considérant quatre dimensions à la fois : la rémunération, la stabilité de l’emploi, la qualification et les heures de travail. Après avoir présenté notre problématique de recherche relative aux inégalités professionnelles entre les genres, l’étude fait une revue des écrits portant sur les principales théories en jeu et sur le concept de la qualité de l’emploi. Ensuite, le cadre conceptuel est présenté afin de situer notre contexte de recherche, les questions générales considérées, la pertinence d’une typologie et les principaux déterminants de la qualité de l’emploi. Le chapitre suivant est consacré à la démarche visant la création d’une nouvelle typologie de la qualité de l’emploi et celle relative au cadre d’analyse. Enfin, nous présentons une analyse des changements de la situation des hommes et des femmes dans les divers types d’emploi en tenant compte de la situation familiale...

Cette recherche porte sur la qualité d’emploi chez les nouveaux diplômés des études postsecondaires au Canada. Elle est motivée par les nombreux bouleversements vécus par le marché du travail, la pénurie de main-d’oeuvre qualifiée et le fait que deux Canadiens sur trois sont directement concernés par la qualité d’emploi. En s’appuyant sur la typologie de Cloutier (2008), nous nous sommes fixé deux objectifs. Le premier vise à examiner l’évolution de la qualité d’emploi des nouveaux diplômés postsecondaires au Canada entre 1992 et 2007. Le deuxième objectif consiste à évaluer l’influence du niveau d’études, du domaine d’études et du sexe des nouveaux diplômés sur la qualité de leur emploi. L’analyse est de type empirique qui s’appuie sur les données de l’Enquête nationale auprès des diplômés réalisée auprès des promotions de 1990 et de 2005 par Statistiques Canada. Concernant le premier objectif, nos résultats indiquent que les dimensions rémunération, stabilité d’emploi et qualification se sont affaiblies en 2007 comparativement à 1992. Quant au deuxième objectif, nous avons trouvé que le niveau d’études et le domaine d’études sont des déterminants importants des quatre dimensions de la qualité d’emploi considérées. Un niveau d’études élevé augmente la rémunération annuelle et la probabilité d’occuper un emploi à temps plein. À l’opposé...

Dissertação apresentada ao Instituto Politécnico do Porto para obtenção do Grau de Mestre em Gestão das Organizações, Ramo de Gestão de Empresas. Orientada por Prof. Doutor Manuel Salvador Gomes de Araújo; O fenómeno do Bullying no Local de Trabalho tem permanecido relativamente “silencioso” no que diz respeito à sua adequada difusão pelos órgãos de comunicação social, encontrando-se, também, fora da consciência dos cidadãos portugueses. O estudo que aqui se apresenta procura estudar esta realidade no contexto do ensino superior português, mais especificamente no ensino superior politécnico. Procurou-se caracterizar o fenómeno em termos de prevalência, numa instituição de ensino superior politécnico do norte do país e comparar esses dados com os de outros setores de atividade já estudados em Portugal. Procurou-se, ainda, estudar o Bullying no Local de Trabalho enquanto preditor de Saúde (física e psicológica) e Satisfação com o Trabalho. De uma forma exploratória, tentou-se estudar a influência de diversas variáveis demográficas e profissionais na prevalência de Bullying, na Saúde e na Satisfação com o Trabalho. Por fim, e de forma qualitativa, utilizou-se a perceção dos profissionais para tentar lançar algumas ideias úteis para a promoção e implementação de uma cultura de respeito e dignidade no local de trabalho. Os resultados encontrados evidenciam valores de prevalência de Bullying no Local de Trabalho próximos a outros setores de atividade e...

El objetivo de este artículo es analizar la influencia de la formación en el trabajo en el logro de la estabilidad laboral y el progreso profesional. El trabajo se inicia con la exposición de los diferentes enfoques teóricos que relacionan este tipo de formación con la movilidad laboral. Asimismo, se exponen las características de los puestos de trabajo y de los trabajadores que desde un punto de vista teórico se asocian con una mayor formación. El análisis empírico se basa en observaciones obtenidas por medio de una encuesta longitudinal que reconstruye la historia laboral de una muestra de jóvenes. Por medio de técnicas de regresión logística y de modelos de Cox de riesgos proporcionales, se analiza la influencia de la formación en el trabajo en el riesgo de ir al paro, en los cambios de empleo que obedecen a la decisión del propio trabajador y en el pro g reso profesional dentro de la empresa. Los resultados indican que el logro de la estabilidad laboral y la consolidación de una carrera profesional dependen más del acceso a un aprendizaje específico en los primeros empleos que de la acumulación de experiencia laboral o de credenciales educativas.; The purpose of this article is to analyze the effects of on-the-job training on the attainment of job stability and professional advancement.

An exploratory study on the role of extrinsic and intrinsic factors in determining job satisfaction amongst urban secondary-school teachers in Namibia was undertaken. Biographical variables pertaining to the teachers' gender, age, marital status, school resources, teaching experience, academic qualifications, and rank were investigated to determine whether these had any significant relevance, or made any notable contribution, to the level of job satisfaction experienced. Also, the correlation between burnout and job satisfaction was investigated to determine the extent to which these two factors are related. A sample of 337 secondary-school teachers randomly selected from 17 government schools, in the Windhoek region of Namibia, voluntarily participated in the study. Results showed significant levels of dissatisfaction pertaining to intrinsic factors of work and, more especially, those factors relating to school area and rank. A significant correlation between levels of burnout and job satisfaction was found, particularly in respect of emotional exhaustion and depersonalization, which were shown to correlate with low levels of job satisfaction. Limitations and recommendations pertaining to the study are discussed.

The quantitative descriptive survey used self-completion questionnaires to study factors influencing nurses' job satisfaction in selected private hospitals in England. Herzberg's Theory of Motivation was used to contextualise the results obtained from 85 completed questionnaires. In terms of Herzberg's Theory of Motivation, the most important extrinsic (hygiene) factor was no satisfaction with their salaries compared to nurses' salaries in other private hospitals in England, in the NHS and even at their own hospitals. However, most nurses were satisfied with the other extrinsic factors (organisation and administration policies, supervision and interpersonal relations). The most important intrinsic factors (motivators), influencing nurses' job satisfaction was their lack of satisfaction with promotions (including the fact that their qualifications were reportedly not considered for promotions), lack of advancement opportunities and being in deadend jobs, and lack of involvement in decision- and policy-making activities. Nurses' levels of job satisfaction might be enhanced if promotion policies could be consistent, advancement opportunities implemented, qualifications considered for promotions, salary issues clarified, and if nurses could be involved in decision- and policy-making. Enhanced levels of job satisfaction could help to reduce turnover rates among registered nurses at the private hospitals in England that participated in this study.
