Award in the Best Youth Employment category at the HR Awards and Global Distinction from Deloitte

Gold Award in the Best Youth Employment category at the HR Awards
and Global Distinction from Deloitte

October 2018

ATHENS  –  ReGeneration’s 7th cycle earned two very important distinctions highlighting the program’s perpetual effort to bridge the gap between young graduates and companies looking for talented professionals who wish to make a dynamic start to their careers. 

The first is yet another Gold Award in the Best Youth Employment Initiative category of the HR Awards from HR Professional Magazine and Boussias Communications, while the second is a distinction from Deloitte and the Global Business Coalition for Education, the largest research and education center, which is honoring ReGeneration as a global case study on the future of work and the 4th Industrial Revolution, among other European initiatives. 

ReGeneration’s successful course has earned the pioneering program a total of seven awards, six of them from HR Awards. The greatest recognition and success for ReGeneration, however, is the continuous increase in participants placed in the labor market, as well as an increase in participating partner companies. To date, more than 200 companies have already onboarded over 600 talented and young ReGeneration program participants. Continuous professional and personal development is the “cornerstone” of ReGeneration, which already counts 35,000 hours of training and 13,000 volunteer hours, while the program’s success was further augmented with the recent collaboration with Piraeus Bank and Project Future.   

ReGeneration’s 7th cycle participants have completed the evaluation and selection process and now qualify for screening by companies who wish to hire junior staff from our program.

About ReGeneration

With a vision to democratize post-university education and career opportunities for young graduates in our country, ReGeneration is the largest employment and training program in Greece. An initiative of the Global Shapers Athens Hub and World Economic Forum, ReGeneration was created with the goal of contributing to youth employment, bridging the skills gap, and combating “brain drain.” The program addresses talented young graduates (up to 29 years old) in a range of specialties with 0 – 3 years of work experience, who strive to stand out as young professionals in Greece. ReGeneration offers participants 6 months (minimum) paid employment at multinational companies and SMEs in Greece, and 72 hours of training with a focus on personal and professional development, as well as mentoring opportunities with renowned market executives. As part of the program, participants also complete 25 volunteer hours supporting select NGOs. ReGeneration is a non-profit program supported by: Coca-Cola, The Coca-Cola Foundation, The Hellenic Initiative and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. Select partners offering necessary services, know-how and resources to the program include: Arctic Shores, ethelon, Job-Pairs, kariera.gr, Mindshare, Deloitte, OTE Academy and RSM Greece.
