The National Employment Pact (NEP) – Employment Services for Egypt
Forte holds the innovative project ‘The National Employment Pact (NEP)’, thereby assisting young Egyptians to find a decent job. The NEP promotes sustainable employment through offering employment services, and fair and decent jobs to job seeking young Egyptians.
The NEP caters exclusively to the Blue Collar segment of the labor market, where jobs do not represent viable career opportunities for young Egyptians because of its often poor working conditions and little social prestige.
