Employers’ Preference on Employability Skills of Business Management and Accounting Graduates

Mismatch between the graduates skills and attributes with the industry needs has been a challenge for colleges and universities. Thus Higher education institutions (HEIs) constantly review the curricula to respond to the relevant human resource needs. This study assessed the employability skills preference of the 65 public and private organizations. The employability skills assessed were analytical, technology, communication, interpersonal, problem-solving and management skills, as well as formal accounting qualification, leadership, capacity for innovation and organization and commercial awareness. The results showed that the skills more preferred by the employers are leadership, communication and interpersonal skills. Conversely, the least preferred by the employers were found to be formal accounting qualification, technology skills and capacity for innovation. The study also established that there are differences on preferences by types of business in terms of communication and interpersonal skills. Future studies could address the different factors affecting the acquisition of each employability skill.

The Effect of Structural Change on Labor Productivity Growth and Employment in the Philippines

Philippines is considered one of the fastest developing economies because of the growing service sector. This growth brought a significant change in the economic structure of the country which previously relied on the agricultural sector. This paper conducted a study about the significant impact of structural change on labor productivity growth and employment. The paper localized the decomposition analysis used in literatures to extract the share of “within” sector and “structural change” to total changes in labor productivity in the Philippines from 2004-2018, and Applied Pooled Least Square, to obtain the impact of structural change to labor productivity growth and employment. Based on Durbin-Watson test results, both Panel Regression Equation and Seemingly Unrelated Equation were utilized because there is no contemporaneous autocorrelation found in Pooled Least Square. Using Breusch-Pagan LM Test, Panel Regression is deemed more appropriate than Seemingly Unrelated Regression. Furthermore, the decomposition analysis showed that higher share of service sector in employment makes the contribution of “structural change” lesser to labor productivity growth due to labor market that becomes less flexible as service sector dominates the labor market because of higher skillsets needed by the sector. The regression analysis showed that structural change is a significant determinant of employment and labor productivity; structural change has a positive relationship to labor productivity due to the transfer of labor to high-productivity sector; and structural change has a negative relationship to employment because the employment brought by the structural change cannot be absorbed by the labor force because of skills mismatch.

Risk Assessment of Sustainable Renewable Energy Resources on CPEC Route

China and Pakistan have collaborated to start the project China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). Major part of this project is the formation of different special economic zones (SEZs) to boost industrial growth. Additional energy plants would be required once these zones are set up. As the world is shifting its trend towards renewable energy, therefore major focus will be on risks related to renewable energy. Literature was studied, different risk factors were identified and risk solutions/measures were also identified. In the second phase, three renewable energy technologies. The main method used for research was Multi Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) through the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) tool. Expert Choice software was used based on AHP structural concept. Pairwise questionnaire was formed while data were collected through three groups consisting of government officials, company representatives and officials and end users. The high risks were identified as a result according to each group and the risk solutions. The results provided priority of risks which were most important according to each group. The solutions were also ranked as identified by each group. The results obtained from second phase indicated which renewable technology was most affected by each of risk factor. This risk assessment can provide overview to government and investors about different risks. The evaluation of results and taking necessary steps can reduce these risks and provide better business and working conditions for this industry.
