With Generation, you have the perfect social good organization, but you need to sit back and breathe before you are ready to confront your scaling moment. Getting someone employed is a difficult task – even more so when people are ticking too few boxes to make it an easy catch for employers -, and from one economy to another, that is supposed to be a completely different story. Generation doesn’t mind: Any time a difficulty or specificity enters the field, Generation still matches employees and employers. Generation is serious about its tagline: “You, Employed.

Its success is communicative and operates as a key to many doors allowing Generation to think and apply tactical system change possibilities at any time.

Anywhere Generation engages in a conversation with a government, a city, a corporation or all 3 together, they come out of the room...

With Generation, you have the perfect social good organization, but you need to sit back and breathe before you are ready to confront your scaling moment. Getting someone employed is a difficult task – even more so when people are ticking too few boxes to make it an easy catch for employers -, and from one economy to another, that is supposed to be a completely different story. Generation doesn’t mind: Any time a difficulty or specificity enters the field, Generation still matches employees and employers. Generation is serious about its tagline: “You, Employed.

Its success is communicative and operates as a key to many doors allowing Generation to think and apply tactical system change possibilities at any time.

Anywhere Generation engages in a conversation with a government, a city, a corporation or all 3 together, they come out of the room with a project, a joint initiative, a scalable and sustainable model to support inclusive growth and institutional strengthening.

With not yet 10 years of existence, Generation is still in its infant days and is promising to disrupt more. One thing to keep in mind though. Generation’s disruption is beautiful. Instead of destroying ‘old’ jobs against limited ‘smart’ jobs, its disruptive approach is fundamentally adding jobs to jobs.

History

Generation is a global employment nonprofit with a mission to transform education-to-employment systems to prepare, place, and support people into life-changing careers that would otherwise be inaccessible.

Unemployment is a source of economic underperformance, social unrest, and individual despair. Today, the COVID-19 pandemic has left hundreds of millions of people unemployed or facing reduced income, with jobless youth and midcareer individuals hardest hit.

All over the world, people seeking employment face discrimination because of their identity or skin color. Black Americans are twice as likely to be unemployed as white Americans. The same is true for Black and Pardo people in Brazil, Black and Asian people in the UK, and First Nations people in Australia, to name a few. Biases against hiring “different” profiles are insidious and pervasive.

Generation is a global employment nonprofit with a mission to transform education-to-employment systems to prepare, place, and support people into life-changing careers that would otherwise be inaccessible.

Unemployment is a source of economic underperformance, social unrest, and individual despair. Today, the COVID-19 pandemic has left hundreds of millions of people unemployed or facing reduced income, with jobless youth and midcareer individuals hardest hit.

All over the world, people seeking employment face discrimination because of their identity or skin color. Black Americans are twice as likely to be unemployed as white Americans. The same is true for Black and Pardo people in Brazil, Black and Asian people in the UK, and First Nations people in Australia, to name a few. Biases against hiring “different” profiles are insidious and pervasive.

Generation launched in five countries in 2015, and now provides profession-specific training, support services, and job placement in 16 countries – Australia, Brazil, Chile, China (Hong Kong), France, India, Ireland, Italy, Kenya, Mexico, Pakistan, Singapore, Spain, Thailand, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Generation measures impact against three types of metrics – breadth, depth, and durability. Breadth is total number of graduates – Generation has 60,000+ graduates to date, and will add 20,000+ in 2022. By annual graduate volume, Generation is the largest multi-country ‘train and place’ program in the world. Depth metrics include job placement and income uplift. Eighty-four percent of graduates are placed in jobs within three months of program completion. Ninety-three percent of program participants are unemployed when they enter, but even those who were working see a 3-4x income increase over what they were making before. And Generation’s results are durable – two to five years later, ~70% of alumni continue to meet daily financial needs, ~40% are saving for the future, and ~80% are confident about their ability to achieve their professional goals.

Based on the insights that come from sitting between thousands of employers and learners, Generation has also undertaken original research. The inaugural effort in 2021 surveyed thousands of employers and midcareer job seekers/career switchers. The resulting report, Meeting the World’s Midcareer Moment, spotlighted deep-seated ageism biases and other challenges that they face in gaining training and employment, receiving significant attention from global media and others in the workforce space.
