Event Details

Through its 2015-2020 National Youth Strategy (NYS), the Irish government made reducing youth unemployment a priority. Encouragingly, the initiative seems to be working, as youth unemployment fell from a high of 31.9 per cent in 2012 to 13.9 per cent in 2018 (CSO). But while employing more young workers is necessary, so too is understanding how they might shape tomorrow's work environment.

Today's youth came of age in a demographically, socially and economically different Ireland than did current business leaders. Likewise, they are joining a more insecure workforce than did previous generations. Given these changes, this seminar will seek to answer how young workers view issues such as corporate social responsibility, organized labour and workers' rights, and work-life balance and family planning.  Through a panel of employment experts, young workers and budding entrepreneurs, this TASC seminar seeks to answer these questions and more by building a comprehensive picture of a future Irish workplace with the leaders of tomorrow.

Seminar speakers:
Chris Gordon: CEO of the Irish Social Enterprise Network 
Laura : A young precarious worker, member of the UNITE union
Chloe Manahan: Chair of Labour Youth

Chair:
Dr Ray Griffin, lecturer in strategic management, Waterford Institute of Technology


NB Registration starts at 3.30pm. The seminar commences at 4.00pm.


In partnership with the National Worker Directors' Group
