HKURIICH Webinar "Thriving in a Workplace: Insights for Graduates"

Graduates transitioning from university to the workplace have historically been considered one of the vulnerable demographic groups in the workforce, as they face many adjustments and changes. COVID-19 exacerbated many of the challenges for graduates. This webinar brings together academics, workplace practitioners and graduates to discuss the results of a large-scale project that focused on the educational, social and mental health impacts of the pandemic on graduates. Speakers will discuss topics related to essential skills, employers’ expectations, graduates’ preparedness, and how their mental health could be supported during the transition period. Implications for post-COVID workplaces will also be considered.
