ManpowerGroup Recommends Strategies for Businesses to Improve Employability Skills of Youth

ManpowerGroup News Release (04/17/12)

ManpowerGroup has recommended ways for businesses to create effective and sustainable solutions for employing more young workers. ManpowerGroup’s new insight paper, “Wanted: Energized, Career-Driven Youth,” addresses the growing regional and global problem of youth unemployment. An increasing number of young people struggle to participate in the work force—just 48.8% of the potential labor force in 2011, according to the International Labor Organization.

“Employers have a vested interest in making investments to improve young people’s ability to succeed in the world of work,” says Jonas Prising, ManpowerGroup president of the Americas. “As older workers exit the work force, the need to nurture the next generation grows ever more critical to ease worsening talent mismatches.”
