CareerWise is always on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are four reports that we found interesting this week:
Employment fell by 63,000 in December – the first decline since April. Employment fell in industries most directly affected by new and continuing public health measures, including accommodation and food services; “other services”; and information, culture and recreation.
This report reveals the positive value that organisations can realize by supporting their staff to undertake volunteering in schools and colleges. It shows that employers who support their staff to volunteer have found employees to be more motivated, more productive and have a better sense of well-being.
This report is based on a flash joint international survey, designed to provide a snapshot of how career guidance policies, systems and services were adapting and coping, following the declaration of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020.
This report examines university drop-out rates in the UK relative to other countries. It observes that actions to reduce drop-out rates potentially risk unwelcome outcomes. For instance, institutions may seek to limit their recruitment of people with characteristics that put them at higher risk of not completing their course.
