Theme: Developing Skills for a Successful Career

Welcome to the Emerging Young Professionals Programme (EYPP), the Edition-2 of our SkillBoost. This programme is another way for us at Heritage Bank to demonstrate our commitment towards developing and positioning youth to become world-class citizens equipped and ready to be absorbed into an increasingly competitive workforce.

We approached this programme with the strategic intent of contributing to the national efforts being made to lessen the increasing unemployment rate amongst youth in the country. According to National Bureau of Statistics (NBS), unemployment rate is moving close to 30% as at 2015 with over 40 million unemployed young graduates in the country.

The Emerging Young Professionals Programme (EYPP) is centered on two key activities:

  • Training and mentoring young graduates to be highly employable and informed young professionals, and
  • A Job Fair that links the nurtured young individuals with potential corporate employers in the country across different industries such as telecommunications, manufacturing, non-bank financial services, and professional services, etc.

We believe the larger society will benefit significantly as EYPP is designed and powered to facilitate the following:

  • Boost the technical skills of unemployed young graduates in the country, and provide employment for them via a job fair
  • Creation of quality and sustainable employment and livelihood for youth
  • Reduction of crime rate in the society

In our opinion, the youth are the future leaders, and will positively reshape and reposition our country in the global environment. Heritage Bank is therefore committed to contribute her unending quota towards grooming them.
