Adecco joins Nestl Alliance for YOUth

The Alliance aims to bring together private companies, alongside European institutions and national governments, in the fight against youth unemployment. As the world leader in Human Resources solutions, Adecco will contribute its labour market expertise and help young people to develop the skills they need to succeed.

Today Adecco, Nestl&eacute and thirteen other global partners convened in Lisbon to mark another milestone for the Nestl&eacute Alliance for YOUth programme.

Political leaders including President of the European Commission Jos&eacute Manuel Barroso, Prime Minister of Portugal Pedro Passos Coelho and Deputy Prime Minister of Portugal Paulo Portas were present as the partners, including industry leaders such as Google, Facebook, Axa, Twitter and Salesforce, signed up to the European Alliance for Apprenticeships. 

Youth unemployment is one of the biggest problems of our times. Today 23.5% of 15- to 24-year-olds are out of work across Europe. The youth jobless rate stands at 56.9% in Greece, 53.5% in Spain, 43.3% in Italy and 36.1% in Portugal[1]. The Alliance for YOUth movement illustrates the need for the public and private sectors to join forces to turn a & lsquo;lost generation’ into a loved generation.

Patrick De Maeseneire, CEO of Adecco Group, said, “We as Adecco are proud to be part in this movement initiated by Nestl&eacute. Young people are unlikely to succeed without that all-important first job and work experience. Within the Alliance for YOUth, we will play a key role by providing educational material, training, job experience, as well as career guidance, this to build a programme aimed at preparing young people for the world of work”.
