Foreign workers are stated to be hard working, punctual and possess more positive attitude. This has been expressed by Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development after their observation that Britain’s schools are not producing good workers.
A report for the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, published this week, said that Britain had yielded a lost generation who were weak in literacy, numeracy and communication skills.
Chartered Institute of Personnel’s quarterly Labour Market Outlook report was constructed after reviewing more than 1,000 British employers and was considered a reliable indicator of employment trends.
The report’s author Gerwyn Davies said that many employers considered that the education system in Britain was simply not ‘fit for purpose’.
aspect.co.uk – one of Britain’s fastest growing property maintenance companies – are expanding their successful London operation nationally and were expecting a flood of applications from British workers when it advertised regionally.
Will Davies, co-founder of aspect.co.uk said, “It was becoming satisfactory for the young in Britain to be without a job and use the economic situation and the massive youth unemployment figures as an excuse.”
He said, “There are plenty of applications from workers over 30 but we want to see a mobilization of younger British workers to take on the challenge of getting out to work and delivering a service like ours.”
Davies asserted ‘Youth unemployment was likely to increase further because there were more experienced people being made redundant who were perhaps more employable.’
Davies asserted that, “There are opportunities available of young workers in many parts of the country and we would ask motivated youngsters, who have the get-up-and-go to leave the benefit culture behind them, check their local press.”
About 12 percent of employers reported that they would be hiring school-leavers in 2012 and less than a quarter said that they would be considering employing 17 to18-year-olds.
aspect.co.uk is one of London’s biggest home maintenance companies with a turnover in excess of £10 million. Their plans to expand into the regions will involve creating hundreds of new jobs.
