"Work Place Initiative"
The ICD International Work Place Initiative
The 2008 global Financial Crisis sparked a significant shift within employment possibilitiesand marked the entrance into a new era of austerity and cutbacks. This shift has adversely affected the younger generations and those without qualifications. Today we face the problem of job scarcity and increased competition within the workforce, something the younger generation are unprepared for.
