From Challenge to Prototype - Social Innovation for the Labour Market
What you need
About the event
The high turnover rate among workers is a big challenge in the Egyptian economy and is causing high losses to everyone involved: workers, companies and thus the economy at large.
*IMAGINE that 100.000s of job seekers find jobs and develop their careers with clear and satisfactory career paths. Moreover companies can build up a new generation of skilled workers to count on in the future!*
For that to happen, let us actively work together on ideas on how to reduce the high turnover in Egypts labour market, focusing on the printing & packaging sector. This sector employs around 250,000 people and rough estimations indicate that around 50% of new employees in that sector leave in the first three months after employment.
Within a 4 days practical workshop, we will go from designing a clear challenge to building prototypes for our solutions in order to test them on the ground. We COUNT on the input from people with experience in different fields, be it media, psychology, IT or any other field.
