Young Workers (aged 16-25) currently form nearly half of the workforce in the electronics manufacturing industry. Their effective management – with an aim at retention and successful skill development – is recognized as a growing challenge to efficient supply chain operations. Just as relevant, is the growing reliance of factories on student workers (58% of surveyed factories currently hire student workers) who form the most vulnerable demographic in need of dedicated support.
In an effort to contribute toward stronger awareness and development of solutions on the issue, CCR CSR has partnered with CESA to conduct a detailed research study on the workers’ needs and existing management practice.
