Supplementary notes

* A “skills gap” is defined by the source as when an employee is not fully proficient, i.e. is not able to do their job to the required level. Please see page 181 of the source report for a more detailed description.

It should be noted that employers were able to give multiple responses to this question. As such, although 75 per cent of skills gaps were at least in part due to transient issues, this does not imply that just 25 percent relate to longer-term issues.
