This World Youth Skills Day, we look at how organisations can help prepare young people for the world of work. What is World Youth Skills Day? World Youth Skills Day was first declared by the United Nations General Assembly...

Coined ‘the new era of work’ – the workplace in 2022 is very different from what any of us imagined it would be like ten or even five years ago. The pace of change continues to accelerate as our customers and organisations find new ways of working, better ways to work with technology and a new sense of giving back to the communities we work amongst.
