Employers have various needs:
- Engaging young people. Many employers struggle to fill vacant posts and say young people lack sufficient employability skills. To gain fulfilling employment, young people need career awareness, aspirations and employability skills.
- Developing skills. Some workers aren’t confident and effective talking to customers or colleagues.
- Personal motivation. To be productive, employees need to feel personally fulfilled, engaged in their local community and valued by others.
- Social responsibility. Social responsibility, whether personal or corporate, can be hard to fulfil under the pressure of day to day business.
