CIPD research report on youth unemployment

by on May 8, 2013

The CIPD have published a research report on Youth Unemployment the title of which is “Employers are from Mars, Young People are from Venus: Addressing the young people/jobs mismatch”.   I would love to have been a fly on the wall in the meeting that produced that title and also when the cover image was selected (it depicts three young people leaning against a wall in a somewhat stereotypical pose).  The report itself is a summary of focus group and survey findings but what will be really interesting is how the CIPD follow this up since they aim to “tackle some of the issues”.   Whether and how this will be integrated with other statements regarding their view of older workers remains to be seen.
