Youth Employment Service (Y.E.S) initiative was proposed by the Department of Trade and Industry in March 2018 as an amendment to the B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice. It is a government collaboration to provide workplace experience to unemployed youth, allowing companies to build a succession pipeline for their organisations.
Benefits of Yes Initiative: Unemployed youth receive an opportunity to work for an organisation for 12 months improving their chance of employment after the 12 months. There are numerous benefits for the youths including workplace experience, the opportunity of being employed by the organisation, contactable references, and additional experience on their cv.
Companies can enhance their BEE score by up to two levels through this initiative.
Bconsult, with our partner companies can take care of this and provide an end-to-end solution.
