Youth Ready Employer Resources

Welcome to this exciting new toolkit designed to improve attracting, engaging and retaining young people in the New Zealand workplace.

The Youth Ready Employers best practice guide has been designed by the Youth Group, a UK-based, cutting edge organisation who are leaders in youth-first solutions, products, and services.

The tool is one of a suite of initiatives the organisation has developed, and is now available in New Zealand through a partnership of the Ministry of Social Development and the Auckland Business Chamber with the resources made available to Chambers and approved business organisations. The resources are free so if you have any questions or after more information, email us at

The tools and templates acknowledge that if business is to benefit from the availability of young people to the workforce there may be some ingrained behaviours and practices employers may need to change in order to attract the youth of today to their workplace.

Today we are proud to offer you up to 20 resources from a suite of 150 resources that will be made available to help you benefit from having young people in your workplace. Register here to continue to receive updates.

Thanks for working with us and making a difference for youth.
