Closing the gap between education and employment (a McKinsey report)
Today I have come across an excellent report by McKinsey on how to close the gap between education and employment.
Young people today are three times as likely as their parents to be out of work. Yet many employers can’t find people with the right entry-level skills to fill their jobs. How to close the gap?
In this video, McKinsey directors Diana Farrell and Mona Mourshed share insights from McKinsey’s research with 8,000 stakeholders. McKinsey also profiles two innovative organizations—one in India and one in the United States—that are pioneering new approaches to successfully transition greater numbers of students from education into employment.
