Benefits of engaging with young people

Your business can make a real difference to young peoples’ lives. Individuals who interacted with employers while at school are 86% less likely to become what’s known as NEETs (not in employment, education or training). They’re also likely to earn around 18% more during their career than their peers without the same opportunities.

By interacting with young people you can:

  • Meet young talent first
  • Inspire young people and grow future skills
  • Proactively address the social value of your business by making a difference to the community
  • Develop your staff’s potential
