There are many business benefits that young workers can bring to an organisation, some of which may not be immediately apparent to employers. We believe that businesses need young people as much as young people need jobs, and believe that employers who bypass young people as a recruitment option are missing out on the range of positive effects they can offer.

The pamphlet includes input from employers in different sectors, who can testify to the benefits young workers have brought to their own workforce. It also provides advice and support to employers looking to offer recruitment opportunities to young people, from internships and apprenticeships to graduate entry level roles.
