Utilising skills During the recession around 10% of people have taken positions which do not fully utilise their skills. That’s a resource which can be leveraged to benefit organisations, and critically, to engage and enthuse staff. Finally, there’s also a sizeable proportion who say they’ve got more to offer their workplace either within their existing role, or in a more suitable position, but their skills have just not been identified.
