Research carried out by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) highlighted that 71 per cent of business owners are of the understanding that they are critical for getting more young people into work.
However, six in ten employers admitted that their firm does not offer any route into employment for non-graduates.
This is in spite of the report going on to reveal that nine out of ten employers end up either being very satisfied or fairly satisfied with the young people they recruit.
Peter Cheese, chief executive of the CIPD, believes "that many employers don't always understand the benefits young people can bring to their organisation or have the right practices in place to bring on young people and give them the best chances of success".
As such, both the CIPD and the Recruitment and Employment Confederation underlined the business community should do more to help non-graduates. This can include offering more work experience placements, apprenticeship opportunities and entry level jobs.
