As per a research report, trained people–who shift to Australia (the Kangaroo Land), to reside and do a job there in, are over and over again not very happy with their jobs–predominantly in a situation where in they end up doing something not similar to what they may have looked forward to before.
There are big differences in the manner qualified migrants and the Australian born labor force actually see their jobs, with skill exploitation much more apt to impact migrants’ job satisfaction, vis-à-vis their local equivalents.
Reportedly, some researchers from a well-known Australian University used a nationally representative model of the local manpower, to study the way job security and skill employment influenced job satisfaction for both trained migrants and the locally born employees.
They carried-out the study because while the preceding study proposed qualified migrants were time and again not very pleased with their jobs, in relation to the works born in Oz, not much was known about why the differences were there.
According to a person behind the research, for the skilled aliens, while there was a remarkable positive relationship between the job security and job satisfaction for the high levels of skill exploitation, there was no major relationship whatsoever between job security and job pleasure for the not too high levels of skill exploitation.
She elucidated that on the flipside, skill utilization did not affect the link between job security and job happiness for the local personnel, adding that skill discounting, whereby migrants had no options except to accept jobs lower than their skill level, was mostly responsible for poor job fulfillment levels.
She indicated that against the backdrop of the rising fears, related to skill deficiency all over the world, skilled migrants may be hired in the jobs that are in proportion to their specific talents, qualifications and experience acquired in their respective nations of origin, still, the situation is completely different.
She also elucidated that qualified migrants are repeatedly confronted with the outlook that they should agree to whatever breaks they are given, and so find themselves doing jobs that are not equal with the abilities and capabilities they have.
Given this, when trained migrants perceive high skill exploitation and high job security, they could be mainly grateful to their company/job-provider and would feel mainly happy with their job.
Reportedly, the research emphasized the requirement to take a more tailor-made instead of one size fits all strategy to human resource management tactics and procedures for qualified migrants and shift to Australia.
She concluded that the study underlines the crucial part of the HR practices in molding and propping-up migrants’ positive appraisal of their jobs, and the values they carry to their places of work, and in turn, their happiness at work.
