Firms warn of skills worries

Graduate Job sector Reports
Inadequately skilled staff is one of the top problems cited by firms in the last year, a new global survey has discovered.
More than a third of chief executive officers and chief information officers questioned by the IT Governance Institute (ITGI) said this area was their biggest obstacle, after insufficient employee numbers and IT service delivery.
The research suggests that concerns over skills and qualifications of recruits may be constant throughout the labour market.
And Lynn Lawton, ITGI's international president, said a full staff numbers and thorough training - particularly in the IT department - may be essential for firms wishing to optimise their potential.
"The bottom line is that many organisations around the world are needlessly sacrificing money, productivity and competitive advantage," she added.
ITGI's publication - entitled the IT Governance Global Status Report 2008 - follows previous papers in 2003 and 2005. It also produces various case studies and guides for best practice.
