South Africa’s unemployment rate – persistently above 25% - is extremely high by international standards.

Job creation is, as a result, always a topical issue.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Asher Bohbot, CEO of EOH, about the science of job creation.

Scroll down for quotes from the audio below.

Unemployment is, by far, the most pressing challenge we face in South Africa. Especially youth-unemployment.

Asher Bohbot

It’s totally untrue that our youth are unemployable!

Asher Bohbot

Asher Bohbot

Those who have worked for a year are six times more likely to get a job than someone without work experience.

Asher Bohbot

I challenge other businesses to do the same as us.

Asher Bohbot

In South Africa we need all skills on deck. We don’t displace anyone. There is a place for young people who are learning and there is a place for older, experienced workers.

Asher Bohbot

Apprenticeships used to drive job creation.
