Hiring young people
School and college leavers are flooding the recruitment market right now, presenting businesses with an excellent opportunity to recruit new talent.
But why recruit young people? Younger employees tend to be more motivated, engaged and more loyal. They inject a fresh perspective and embrace new ways of working. They live and breathe the digital age. They have the enthusiasm to do a good job and will be keen to learn.
Young people are also a great way to support growth and talent development plans. Have you thought about role succession in your business? What happens if your most trusted, valued employee leaves out of the blue? What can you do to ease that potential risk?
Taking that further, employing young people can help to support business plans. For example, proving your business is a socially responsible one, through a commitment to local communities, giving back and leading the way in developing the skilled workforce of the future, can have an
extremely powerful impact.
