Bosch Rexroth South Africa says “YES” to youth employment

The Bosch Rexroth South Africa Group participated in local government’s 2021 Youth Employment Service (YES) Programme, which took place from 1 March 2021 to 28 February 2022. This experiential learning programme is a joint venture between government and the private sector, with the aim to create one million work opportunities for unemployed youth.

Through this programme we empowered 17 learners between the age of 18 to 25 with workplace experience and workplace readiness skills by working in various departments across the Group over a 12-month period. Participants learned about the roles that the various departments fulfil, as well as the functions performed by employees.

In March this year, 16 learners graduated from the programme. 10 of these learners have been offered employment to join our Group — positions range from contractual employment (apprenticeships and limited duration contracts) to permanent employment.

“We believe this is a worthy initiative that offers learners valuable experience which they can add to their CV once they’ve graduated, making them more sought-after in a competitive job market. We are proud to have enriched these learners with various skills, especially that of workplace readiness, which will enable them to adjust to future workplace environments easily, empowered with effective communication skills,” comments Chris Riley, CEO, Bosch Rexroth South Africa Group of Companies.

The success of the 2021 programme has motivated the Group to commit to the 2022 programme with an aim of enrolling 34 learners.
