About #Eutalent

EU Talent – Business in Europe Hosting Apprenticeships for Youth is a two year project helping SMEs to better engage in apprenticeships. Run in 12 countries by CSR Europe and its national partners the project provides direct support to SMEs in form of support structures.

This program aims to develop support structures for professional practice models through national and European networks for SMEs, in order to offer more practices, and of better quality, to young people in unemployment. It poses three types of impact:

  • Sensitization to more than 6,000 SMEs through an online communication campaign.
  • Training for more than 100 SMEs through webinars and online training as well as meetings and exchange of good practices.
  • Tutoring to 20 SMEs through a program to improve the quality of their professional practices carried out by the Forética team.

Why has Kernel opted for quality internship programs?

  • Because they allow access to future employees in which to find skills and specific qualities that the company requires, and which often may not be readily available in the labor market.
  • Because recruiting young people in professional internships is a more economical and efficient way to attract talent than the recruitment of profiles in the labor market.
  • Because professional internship programs allow us to improve the employer branding of the company in our local community and professional sector.

Jorge Fernández
Kernel – CEO

Jorge Fernández, CEO of Kernel explains on the EU Talent website the reasons to participate in this innovative international project.

Incorporating people into the company always entailed a period of continuous training until the person in question was fully efficient. By changing our business model from selling expertise consulting to selling solutions, incorporating young people with high skills to offer them a career within the company made a lot of sense.
The experience of having apprentices was very positive. On one hand, it allowed us to have a fresh and impartial external vision and new insights coming from talent with different backgrounds. On the other hand, it allowed us to have access to International talent due to the origin of the students of Esade’s Master’s degrees and the privilege of the methodological support from a prestigious Business School.
