“Partnering with EFE to complement our hiring and training approach has proven inspirational.

Business success depends on having the right people, with the right skills, at the right time – a challenge employers face every day. EFE helps bridge the talent gap in the MENA region by working closely with businesses to develop targeted training programs; jointly recruit young talent; and train a workforce of skilled employees ready to work from day one. Because we work with youth segments who need opportunities most, our partners get access to loyal employees from previously untapped talent pools, and the costs of training are subsidized by donors. EFE trainees are reliable performers:76% of EFE alumni retain their jobs beyond three months. And over 2,700 companies – from major multinationals to SME’s – have employed EFE alumni in a variety of industries, such as:
Partnering with EFE also links companies to other forward-looking businesses operating in MENA. Employing EFE alumni is a high-return social investment strategy that provides opportunity and hope to young people, their families and communities.
