We’re helping more young people get educated, trained and into good jobs through our Global Youth Initiative. This doesn’t just help them, it lays the foundations for a prosperous future for all of us.
Roll out our Nestlé needs YOUth initiative across all our operations
Why it matters
Youth unemployment affects millions around the world, contributing to global poverty. As a major employer, we know the positive difference we can make through employment opportunities and skills development. We offer apprenticeships, training schemes and initiatives designed to equip people with essential workplace skills.
What we are doing
Through our various initiatives and programmes, our endeavour is to contribute in narrowing this gap. We strive to develop an environment of trust, dialogue and mutual respect encompassing our operations and value chain, while providing a safe and healthy work environment to our employees and promote human rights in compliance with the highest ethical standards. Through our various youth initiatives, young talent is nurtured and mentored to inspire strong and sustainable leadership.
As a major employer, Nestlé India recognises the need for youth employment initiatives to create employment opportunities as well as skill development through apprenticeships and internships, among others. The year 2013 saw the launch of Global Youth Initiative which has been launched in all Nestlé markets including India. The idea behind this initiative is to continue expanding the diversity of our organization and specifically develop the next generation of Nestlé leaders by supporting young people in their transition from education to work.
The Global Youth Initiative focuses on two areas:
- Implement or strengthen existing apprenticeship and traineeship programs;
- Enhance "readiness for work" activities (participation in job fairs, open days, CV clinics etc.)
