The Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (ACAS) have published a new research report Young People's experiences in the workplace.

The report provides insight into what motivates young people as they make the transition into employment including:

  • what makes work desirable
  • organisational commitment
  • employee involvement and voice at work.

The report found that the most important aspects of work to young people are: enjoyable work tasks, pay and job security and friendly colleagues.

Younger people are no more or less dedicated to their job than people that are older. The only factor that is unique to younger people in it’s importance is the delegation of decision making and autonomy to work in teams.
