Patricia O’Hagan MBE, CEO of Core Systems attended the Skills Matter Impact Report launch at the Young Enterprise Big Market event.
Patricia addressed the room and spoke about the importance of schemes likes Young Enterprise from an employer’s perspective.
Young Enterprise (YENI) helps the participants to develop skills such as critical thinking and analysis, creativity and problem solving – all these are highly desirable skills which employers are looking for in candidates. In fact – 50% of our business development team are YENI alumni – and this team are high-performing, self-managed and innovative with their thinking.
Patricia also urged other employers to recognise the value of these transferrable skills that currently around 100,000 young people each year are developing through the YENI experience.
Patricia has been a judge for YENI over the years and continues to support the cause. She even got started on some Christmas shopping at the Big Market event!
