Job Quality?

In recent years, there has been a focus on qualitative aspects of employment in Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), which can be improved along with the creation of employment opportunities.  

While SMEs are considered to be “the engines of growth” to the economy, there is large concern over the quality of jobs provided. On the one hand, private sector businesses are having difficulty finding skilled workers to fill their vacant positions, particularly in the non- academic sector, while on the other hand many vacant employment positions are offered under poor quality conditions.  

Many jobs, for example are offered without complete employment contracts, little or no social benefits and very low wages. Moreover, women in particular are highly affected by poor quality of employment whereby the lack of safe transportation and proper childcare facilities are set to increase the unemployment rate.
