Youth Employment: Raising Tomorrows Leaders, Today

Reflecting on the present development within the Middle East, the top priorities would be the changing composition of its demographic structure. Youth in MENA believe that finding a job is the foremost challenging, with only 4% of UAE nationals occupying the private sector. However, private organisations are beginning to grasp the needs of the millennials by launching learning and development initiatives to attract fresh graduates in line with the government’s vision in building a knowledge-based economy for a brighter future.

Today, youths in the Arab world face the toughest job market globally. Do you have the power to reduce the youth bulge? Are collaborative efforts across all industries a necessity? How do you provide better platforms for youths to fulfill their potential?

Join marcus evans 2-day Youth Employment: Raising Tomorrows Leaders, Today featuring some of the most influential leaders across the region and gain valuable insights on What Millennial Talents Really Expect. Featuring a Ministerial Spotlight Keynote highlighting on the measures taken to bridge the gap between government, private and the youths.

This conference will also delve into a Women in Economy Spotlight which discusses the biggest challenges women face stepping into the workforce. Be part of our highly interactive discussions on Are Private Sectors the Future for Youth, Strengthening Collaboration between Education and Industry, Current Youth Initiatives and Youth Workforce: The Future of Employment and walk away with best long-term career development for the future of tomorrow. Leverage on our ½ Day Workshop on How to Optimise On Boarding for New Recruits focusing on providing your new generation employees with top-tier on boarding experience.
