EY global job creation and youth entrepreneurship survey 2015. Les premières conclusions du rapport EY G20 YEA

Entrepreneurs continue to create jobs. And optimism.

« If you think you can, or you think you can’t, either way you are right. »
Henry Ford

Ford’s words are as true for today’s entrepreneurs as they were to Ford himself almost one hundred years ago. Optimism, as well as pessimism, is a mindset. And according to EY’s 2015 Global Job Creation and Youth Entrepreneurship Survey, optimism is winning: entrepreneurs are leading job creation globally, with 47% of entrepreneurs expecting to increase their total global workforce this year.

The fourth annual report, from the EY Global Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, surveyed 201 past Entrepreneur Of The Year winners* about their hiring plans and economic confidence.

Additionally, we polled another 2,000+ innovative entrepreneurs* from around the globe. These respondents bring a point of view from a broad and diverse range of emerging country economies, including key global growth drivers such as India, China and Brazil.


Expanded scope includes the aspirations of youth

In this year’s report, we went even deeper. With global youth unemployment at a near crisis point, we wanted to know what younger people were thinking and feeling about the future.

So in part two of the survey, we present finding from 2,807 young people, aged 18-25.**

We asked about their career aspirations to find out how entrepreneurship fits into their plans. The research, conducted online, captures the real-time views and ambitions of young people in education or actively engaged in the job market.


What the job creation survey found

  • Entrepreneurs have greater expectations regarding their hiring than do their larger counterparts. Noteworthy as well is a comparison to another report, the April 2015 EY Capital Confidence Barometer, which tracks job creation in large, global public and privately held companies in 54 countries. That report showed that only 29% of 1,600 senior executives surveyed indicate they expect to create jobs or hire new talent in the next 12 months.
  • Job creation – the world’s economic lifeblood – remains in good hands. Seventy-seven percent of our roster of the world’s most dynamic entrepreneurs – EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ winners from more than 60 countries – expect to increase their total global workforce in 2015 (up one percentage point from 2014). This is considerably higher than the 47% figure from the rest of the world’s entrepreneurs we added to the survey size this year.
  • Good spirits run high. Confidence in both domestic and global economic prospects remains relatively buoyant, with 71% of global entrepreneurs surveyed feeling optimistic about the economic direction of their domestic market. Sixty-six percent feel good about the economic direction of the global economy on the whole.
