CareerWise is always on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are three reports that we found interesting this week.

Gendered impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the proportion of youth neither in employment nor education at the start of the school year (Statistics Canada)

This study shows that at the start of the 2020/2021 school year, when faced with unprecedented youth unemployment and post-secondary education moving online, young women aged 17 to 24 responded by enrolling in post-secondary institutions at a higher rate than a year earlier. There was no increase among young men.

21st Century Digital Skills (IRPP)

Given this need to take advantage of the opportunities provided by new digital technologies, this paper focuses on the importance of training and support for teachers to ensure that they have the skills and competencies required to integrate technology into an educational setting successfully.

Remote-Work Options Can Boost Productivity and Curb Burnout (Catalyst)

Catalyst found in a global survey that 92% of workers say they are experiencing burnout from the stress related to their workplace, their COVID-19 work experiences and/or their personal lives. Access to remote work, researchers say, can help improve employee well-being – as well as productivity, innovation, retention and inclusion.
