Business South Seminar Series: Next Generation Workers and Leaders


Our next generation of Workers and Leaders, the future remains bright and full of opportunities

For those young people who have recently entered the workforce, or are poised to do so, it is an uncertain time. Coming off the back of the deepest recession in more than 300 years, getting on the job ladder looks precarious. We know from academic research that an individual's long-term economic prospects are often intertwined with the conditions that they first encounter in the world of work. Recessions end, but the damage can be long lasting.


During the global financial crisis in 2008-09 it took six years longer for young people to have their wages recover to their preceding cohorts. Similar studies have found that those entering the job market during the recessions of the early 1980s and 1990s experienced lower future employment prospects and a diminished sense of well being. University graduates disproportionately found themselves in non-graduate jobs even many years after those recessions had ended.

One of the many economic challenges over the coming months is to ensure that the COVID19 generation do not face similar long term negative impacts.

Our Government is addressing these issues through the Kick Start Scheme, the Lifetime Skills Guarantee and Apprenticeships and we should expect more support to be announced in the budget on the 3rd March.

Undoubtedly as business leaders, our role is to be realistic but at the same time, optimistic that current difficulties will ultimately pass leading to a bright future for our next generation of leaders and workers.

Our third seminar in this series considers these issues and the opportunities for leaders and workers emerging into employment. We will have a range of high profile and passionate subject matter experts providing views on the latest developments and their relevance to business leaders, our region and our people.

This promises to be an informative and thought provoking virtual seminar providing essential content for business leaders and professionals.
