is a series of events across Slovakia designed to bring together local and international business experts, government officials and youth leaders to promote employment opportunities for young people.
The Youth Employment Week is organized under the auspices of Andrej Kiska, President of the Slovak Republic
The labor market for young people in the European Union continues to show worrying developments. Slovakia is listed at the bottom of the EU-wide youth unemployment charts. In April 2013, the European Commission adopted the Youth Guarantee scheme to ensure that young people have better access to employment opportunities. What have been the developments in Slovakia ever since? What opportunities does it bring for businesses in Slovakia? Will it really pay off to focus on employing young people?
