Job mismatch: the phenomenon of overskilled employees as a result of poor managerial competences
Businesses in current era are challenged by many sustainability issues, where one extremely important is regarding labor market and HR transformation. In this article we have looked at the aspects of human capital which are necessary for long term sustainability, and that is the relation between the workplace design and the skills and abilities of the employees. The paper presents the views and opinions of various authors and the results of several research articles on skill and educational mismatch to highlight the importance of proper job design. The article also presents the results of own research of 200 Slovak companies focused on changes in HRM under the influence of ongoing changes. The main findings are the differences in skills and educational mismatch between countries, which have also been analyzed from the point of view of trust in management and quality of management as well as the involvement of line managers and HR departments in recruitment, selection and employee assessment processes. From the point of view of Slovak Republic, findings are presented which contradict the generally discussed topic of educational mismatch and point to the insufficient design of the workplaces and the related low utilization of the human capital potential in the country.
