The upgrading of workforce skills is key to the competitiveness of SMEs. In today’s business environment there is a premium on innovation that enables firms to develop new products and services, new production processes and new business models. This requires both in-house innovation and the ability to absorb knowledge from other firms and organisations, both of which call for a skilled labour force. Skills are also a critical but understated resource for entrepreneurship seen in the sense of business creation. Similarly to workforce skills, entrepreneurship skills will boost the competitiveness of local businesses thanks to the improved strategic and management competences of the entrepreneur.

    • The main conclusions of this evaluation The completed Social Fund work is expected to reach the planned purpose. This means that the completed projects have led to an improved competence level of the participants as well as an improvement of the participants’ possibilities of employment. 62 percent of the employed and 53 percent of the unemployed have improved their competences to a large degree as a result of participating in a Social Fund project. 92 percent of the employed participants, who gained new competences, were able to use these new competences in their work. This represents 57 percent of all employed participants. 40 percent of the unemployed participants, who gained new competences, were able to use these to become employed or to get closer to being employed as a direct result of participating in the project. This represents 21 percent of all unemployed participants. ….

    • Soft Business Support to Entrepreneurs in NorthJutland Basic counselling provided by private-sector advisors enhanced the two-year survival rate of new firms by 8%, the three-year survival rate by 6% and the four-year survival rate by 5%. Basic counselling also enhanced subsequent job creation and sales. Concretely, three years after participation the programme had contributed to 165 new jobs and to an average in-crease in terms of sales of 127,000 DKK. The programme effects on job creation and firm turnover tend to wear off over time. Extended start-up assistance further enhanced the two- year and three-year survival rates by 7.6%, and the four- year survival rate by 6.4%. Unlike basic counselling, extended start-up assistance did enhance the growth rate of busi-nesses. Concretely, start- up support led to a 3% higher frequency of new firms which grow (in terms of sales or employees) at least 20%.
