Unicorns and Rainbows: Unpacking Millennial Workplace Expectations
South Africa's post-election 2019 youth unemployment rate is current 55%. This is a scary reality as our vital skills resource, so needed to drive economic growth, is largely untapped. A complex issue to be addressed, some of the barriers to workplace access for young people (graduate and school leaver alike) is the soft skills gap and the perception of Millennials and GenZs in the workplace. In this episode, I share my three part interview with a 'unicorn' millennial: he is hard working, talented, energetic and creative. Yet he struggled for months after graduation, feeling defeated in his job search. There are millions of others like Siyabonga Ndlovu, who is a rough diamond just waiting to be shaped and polished into the change agents of our future.
