Join Transparency at Work alongside InternsGoPro, the European Youth Forum, La FAGE, Brussels Interns NGO and many more!! We call on you to engage in this 3-year international campaign to boost equal opportunity for young people. Our aim is to help 1 million young people access better jobs, internships and apprenticeships.
Why do we need a transparent labor market?
The first professional experiences are too often a source of difficulties. For millions of young people studies alone are not enough to find a job; employers asking them for professional skills and experience they have not yet acquired. Internships, apprenticeships and other first professional experiences, are now compulsory to access employment. Unfortunately, most of them are poorly designed, precarious and sometimes abusive. Without transparency, practices do not improve and youth face a problem of equal opportunities.
What can we do? → #WeRate
From November 10th all young people will be able to rate their first working experiences on http://transparencyatwork.org/ . We will create the largest participatory database on the quality of young people working conditions.
Impact through technology
Within 6 months the database will be public and the 1st ranking of the best companies for Youth will be published. Each young person will be able to look for the evaluations by companies, sectors, geography.
Each partner university or association will be able to access and showcase the data directly on their website. Through an API, we want to equip every university and partner with a common assessment tool of the working conditions of young people in companies.
The goal is to 1) encourage companies to improve their practices 2) give tools to universities to better orient their students, 3) help young people better integrate into the job market.
An international campaign
In 3 years, thanks to a community of changemakers, we intend to collect and publish 100,000 evaluations of 10,000 companies internationally.
The official launch of www.transparencyatwork.org is scheduled for November 10th, International Interns’ Day.
You can support the spread of the transparency at work tool or even take it on your site. More info here: https: //goo.gl/ng1XEn
