PODCAST: Developing Future Talent with Junior Achievement Europe

The future of work, and the future of workers is changing. Getting young people ready for work needs to focus on getting the skill set right – the current talent shortage gives opportunities to detect the potential for future generations and the future of talent.

In our latest episode in the Transform Talent Podcast series hosted by ManpowerGroup’s Dominika Galusa and April Clark, we invite Axel Andersson and Isak Lager, Co-Founders of Shear Joy, and Michel Debruyne, Managing Consultant from Talent Solutions Right Management to discuss innovation & entrepreneurship, work readiness, and future of work skills.

Shear Joy, a Swedish company that creates sustainable product made of sheep’s wool waste, is our 2021 winner of the ManpowerGroup “Ready for Work” Award granted at Junior Achievement Europe’s Gen-E contest, and an inspiration to all young entrepreneurs. This contest is a celebration of entrepreneurship and the achievements of European students, where thousands of young entrepreneurs, 15 years and older, showcase their cutting-edge business ideas. ManpowerGroup’s partnership with Junior Achievement spans several years, across more than 30 countries worldwide.

We invite you to listen in on this latest episode to hear more from Alex and Isak about Shear Joy’s development and learnings and their thoughts on how young people can future-proof their careers with the right skills. We also discuss how the 1-year Mentoring Programme developed and delivered by Right Management for the winning student team will support their growth.
