2014 rankings of the IDEAL™ Employers

A survey of 30,000 Canadian students reveals young people’s attitudes towards employers and their careers. The report’s authors say that the data may correct a number of misconceptions about the so-called Millennial generation. The data suggest that Canadian students consider a greater number of employers than in years past, and are increasingly focused on employers rather than specific industries when looking for work. Respondents also indicated that they highly valued an employer’s organizational culture. The 5 qualities in a company that most appealed to students were, in order, a creative and dynamic work environment, a friendly work environment, respect for its people, job security, and high future earnings.

ASPIRES 2

This the second phase of a ten-year longitudinal research project out of the UK studying young people’s science and career aspirations. ASPIRES 2 will extend the unique dataset developed by the first ASPIRES study, which tracked the development of young people’s science and career aspirations from age 10-14 (from 2009-2013). For further details, please see the ASPIRES report. ASPIRES 2 is continuing this tracking over the crucial next five years of the young people’s lives, to understand the changing influences of the family, school, careers education and social identities and inequalities on young people’s science and career aspirations and, crucially, relate these to their actual subject choices and attainment in national examinations in Year 11 (GCSE) and their post-16 choices.

The study found that the impact on the Canadian economy is relatively low compared to some European countries.
