Responsible business club

Ready to work

The purpose of the program is to establish cooperation between the civil society sector, the business sector and the institutions in order to provide guidelines and training for persons aged 17 to 29 for effective inclusion in the labour market.

The high rate of youth unemployment and their migration constitute problems for the society and a financial burden for the employed people. In the long run, the companies are facing shortage of manpower. Young people face difficulties finding work due to various circumstances. There are differences between the requirements of the employers from the business sector and what young people have to offer with their skills and experience. In addition, the educational process is not always in line with the requirements of the businesses. The number of young people who see the private companies as desirable employers is very small because they do not trust them and they are not familiar with the opportunities they offer.

The Programme helps the companies:

  • to improve their policies and practices for youth employment;
  • to become a desirable employer for young people;
  • to learn more about their needs and to create tools for direct work with them.

Duration:  3 months


The human resources managers of the enterprises that will join this program will be given a guide that will help them to improve their employment policies and adjust the job anouncements for the employment of young people.

“The Guide for Adapting Internal Policies for Employment of Enterprises” will be prepared by Konekt, in cooperation with the youth organization.
