Businesses value young people with positive attitudes, a regional business leader said as ‘A’ Level results were revealed.
James Allen, assistant regional director for business lobby group CBI East of England, congratulated students on their results, but stressed there were other factors employers considered when taking on new recruits.
“There is a whole range of fantastic opportunities available from college or university courses, to high-quality apprenticeships that help build skills and careers,” he said.
“That’s why it’s so important that young people get good advice about the whole world of options available. As valuable as exam results are, they are one of several factors that employers look for when hiring.
“Businesses value young people with positive attitudes to work and their career – as those people so often succeed in any field they pursue.”
