Our Social Impact work involves thinking about the people our members employ and the communities where they operate.
In 2017, our members told us that they wanted to know more about ways to help the most excluded and disadvantaged groups in their communities. One of the areas of greatest opportunity for business to help is through employment.
We found that employers wanted to employ more young people, but didn’t know how to reach them or how to get them into work.
We have designed this toolkit to support our members to effectively hire young people and help the recruitment process run smoothly. It can be used by all employers who are in the middle of, or about to undertake a recruitment process.
It provides a checklist of all the key processes and stages that an employer will go through when hiring new young employees. It suggests channels to find youth employees, and includes pre-prepared forms, such as job application and interview questionnaire forms.
Before you use this tool, check out more tips and strategies to hire, train and retain young people.
