A new study, Toward Solutions for Youth Employment: A 2015 Baseline Report, looks into new areas that can boost the chances of employment for young people around the world:
- Digital Age Impact – the technological revolution is fundamentally changing work and relationships, but this shift is unevenly felt across the world.
- Skills Gap – in order to fill the skills gap, opportunities for all, especially the most vulnerable, must be improved.
- Quality Jobs – quantitative unemployment measurements do not reflect quality of employment and deeper understandings of today’s working conditions is required.
- Entrepreneurship and self-employment – Young people are 1.6 times more likely than adults to display entrepreneurial activity and this can be encouraged.
Fascinating report worth checking out. While a global perspective lots of useful ideas for New Zealand
