Employers satisfied with their workers' organisational skills

Even though workers in Croatia are not systematically taught organisational skills, as many as 58% of employers in small and medium-sized businesses consider their employees very well organised, shows a survey conducted by the Institute of Organisation.

The survey, covering 150 small and medium-sized businesses, namely 39 businesses in five regions each, shows that 58% of employers consider an average worker as very good. That their workers are excellent is what 7% of employers believe and 35% consider their workers good.

"Despite stereotypes about residents of specific regions, there are no significant differences between those regions. employers have given similar assessments of their workers' organisation both in the country's south and north," the Institute of Organisation said.

Even though they give high grades for their workers' organisation, 23% of the surveyed employers admit that their projects are late because of poor organisation. For that, they mostly blame their workers (30%), the state (28%), and clients (12%), while 30% of the surveyed employers blame equally their employees, the state and clients.

The survey shows that as many as 92% of employers believe that it would be useful to teach organisational skills to their workers, but that 30% of them have not organised any such training. Many of them says that organisational skills should be acquired in the course of one's education.
