Acting according to values is especially relevant when considering the socio-cultural and professional integration of vulnerable and de-affiliated groups.
The modern professional world is fast paced, diverse and ever changing. Acting according to values, a competence under the Self-Management umbrella, becomes vital in assisting youth in navigating the workplace. Youth need to be able to manage themselves with flexibility and adapt to different work environments.
Recent Gallup report finds that 21% of millennials reported a change in their job in the past year, three time more than non-millennials (Gallup, 2016).
Additionally, youth need to be able to understand and believe in themselves, be able to identify their interests and connect that to finding the right workplace fit for them (AEGEE, 2018).
