Why Investing in Youth Employment is Good for Business and your B-BBEE scorecard

An important amendment to the Codes of Good Practice has made it possible for firms to move a level up on the B-BBEE scorecard whilst investing in South Africa’s future by building youth employability.

The Youth Employment Service (YES) officially opened for registration in November 2018 to enable businesses to participate in contributing to the transformation of youth futures in South Africa.

A scaled and collaborative approach is needed given 6.1 million youth are locked out of economic participation.

YES, the Department of Trade and Industry (dti) and South African National Accreditation System (SANAS) are working to create a seamless pathway for citizens and companies to be part of this joint business commitment.

Join us at a GIBS breakfast session with YES and the dti for more information and feedback on particular areas which have been identified as important for businesses.

YES packs will be available for delegates to take away and share with colleagues.
