Abstract

El capital humano es un elemento clave para el logro de objetivos en términos de competitividad y crecimiento del sector de turismo en España. En este trabajo se utilizan datos muy recientes (procedentes de la Encuesta de Calidad de Vida en el Trabajo, ECVT) para abordar tres aspectos fundamentales en su análisis: el rendimiento educativo que los trabajadores obtienen a cambio de la inversión que realizan en su formación reglada; la medición de los niveles de desajuste entre dicha formación y los puestos de trabajo que ocupan, y su relación con el salario; y, por último, el análisis de diversas dimensiones de la satisfacción laboral y de la relación que se establece entre ellas y la sobreeducación de los trabajadores. Human capital is a crucial element for the achievement of goals in terms of competitiveness and growth in the Spanish Tourism sector. In this article we use very recent data (from the Quality of Life at Work Survey, ECVT) to tackle three key related aspects: (1) the returns to education obtained by workers in exchange of the investment made in their education/qualifications; (2) the measurement of the existing mismatch between such education/qualifications and their jobs’ requirements, and the assessment of its relationship with wages and (3) the analysis of the diverse dimensions of satisfaction with work, and the links between them and workers’ education mismatch.
