We know investing in youth livelihoods can produce long-term positive outcomes, but how do we make sustainable change in complex systems at scale and in a resource-constrained environment?
To remain competitive, companies need strategies to attract, retain, and connect with millennials.
Strong new evidence underscores the necessity of increasing investment in youth economic opportunity. The recently released International Labour Organization (ILO) World Employment and Social Outlook for Youth 2016 report shows youth unemployment on the rise. According to the ILO, a lower than expected global growth rate, the lowest in developing countries in more than a decade, will leave an addition half million young people unemployed. The report points out that at least four United Nations Sustainable Development Goals will be reached much more easily if young people are employed in stable jobs.
