Nestlé Rolls Out Global Youth Initiative

Nestlé Rolls Out Global Youth Initiative

The Nestlé Global Youth Initiative will help young people across the world develop skills and become more employable. It aims to develop young talent for the company and help tackle the global youth unemployment crisis.

The initiative follows Nestlé’s Youth Employment Initiative in Europe, launched in 2013 with a pledge to create 20,000 positions for young people across the continent over three years.

Close to 12,000 jobs and training opportunities have been created in Europe so far.

Last year Nestlé expanded this youth employment scheme, creating the Alliance for YOUth to mobilise companies who wanted to help the young people of Europe find work.

Mexico is the first Nestlé market outside of Europe to implement the Nestlé Global Youth Initiative.

Nestlé Mexico will create close to 3,000 jobs and 500 internships for young people in Mexico. It will also rollout a Readiness for Work programme, for over 300,000 students, offering career counselling, CV workshops and interview training at schools, colleges and Nestlé sites.

“The Nestlé Global Youth Initiative is an investment for the future. We want to continue developing the next generation of Nestlé leaders. I am confident that the opportunities we are offering will ensure that young people across the world are able to gain the skills they need to meet their professional aspirations” says Nestlé CEO, Paul Bulcke.

Almost 1 in 10 young people in Mexico are unemployed.

A lack of education and skills, low availability of formal, permanent jobs and ‘skills mismatch’, where overqualified people are forced to take low skilled jobs, are key issues.

In addition to offering jobs, internships and training programmes, the Nestlé Global Youth Initiative in Mexico will place special focus on helping young women, who are particularly affected by youth unemployment, to build entrepreneurial skills.

The programme will also build formal partnerships with government employment agencies and other corporations to find young people suitable jobs.

Both Nestlé’s global and European youth initiatives are based on a model particular to Switzerland, known as a dual education system. The system involves combining educational activities with practical apprenticeships and training.

The Nestlé Global Youth Initiative will be rolled out across all of Nestlé’s markets and businesses.
