The Youth I.D.E.A.S. announced its latest report on
Flexible Employment of Today’s Youth
The Youth I.D.E.A.S. (established by HKFYG Youth Research Centre) has released its study on “Flexible Employment of Today’s Youth”. Data gathered from 528 working youth aged 15-34 showed that 51.1% of them took up flexi-work in the past year, most (52.4%) saying flexible employment offers greater control over working hours while 44.8% saying it was more lucrative than conventional jobs.
The study recommended setting up a platform of “Flexi Circle” to provide supporting service and information. It also recommended the Education Bureau to improve the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) Mechanism of the Qualifications Framework so that flexi-work experience can be accumulated officially.
