Generation: Exactly What Employers Need
We focus on tracking and raising the return on investment (ROI) that employers get from recruiting and training. As a result, your new hires operate at higher productivity, with longer retention, and faster speed to promotion.
A gift to Generation provides people across the country with the support and training they need to begin a successful, sustainable career.
“We’ve designed our new programs specifically for workers who are unemployed, underemployed, facing job displacement due to automation, or further challenged by the pandemic to be delivered at scale; and as always, providing both technical and professional ‘soft skill’ training and support,” said Sean Segal, CEO of Generation.
“We think most people can do anything when they’re ready,” Segal said. “It’s never too late to invest in yourself. And this program, while it’s a big commitment, is also free, and it has the potential to change lives. So if you’re thinking about it, apply tomorrow and start the journey.”
An often-overlooked group among the job candidate base are opportunity youth, defined by the Rockefeller Foundation as young people between the ages of 16 to 24 who are neither in school, nor working. In the U.S., that’s an untapped talent pool of 6.7 million individuals.
