To understand the future you have to recruit it.
55% businesses are not confident there will be enough people with the skills needed to fill their jobs in the future. Businesses are losing out on key talent because they are struggling to attract young people.
Current recruitment practices don’t match the future workforce.
Work is changing, more young people are entering the job market and your hiring process needs to catch up. 1 in 3 young people find the process of applying for jobs difficult. You’re future employee is open, flexible & transparent: does your recruitment process match up?
Your next candidate is your future consumer.
A poor recruitment process is damaging for the reputation of companies; with 1 in 5 young people saying a bad process had put them off the company they were applying to.
That’s why we’ve launched Future Proof, our new campaign, backed by the City & Guilds Group, to break down barriers in recruitment and create quality accessible jobs for all young people.
