The Coordination’s Committee of Party’s Youth Leaders and Politicians (CPYP) signed on Saturday a cooperation and partnership protocol in Cairo with the 'Willis Towers Watson’ company to evaluate and develop youth leaderships in Egypt, a joint press release said.
According to the signed protocol, the Willis Towers Watson Company will design and provide individualised, specialised tests for all members of the CPYP in order to measure the various abilities and skills of leadership in the various executive and legislative fields, in order for CPYP to be able to develop a development plan for the members of the coordination based on these scientific tests.
The evaluation process for the CPYP's members will be done through the use of the global Saville Assessment Tool, which is a set of very advanced tests that are used in recruiting, building and leading youth talent as well as preparing them for future leadership positions in many important international entities, whether in the fields of finance and business or in the areas of political and international decision-making, the press release added.
The CPYP - established in 2018 - includes members of 25 political parties from various political orientations and currently has become one of the most prominent political entities in Egypt. It aims to grow political life and work with youth to put an end to the state of polarisation and to find common ground.
The Willis Towers Watson company, established in 1828, is a leading global advisory, broking and solutions company. It helps clients around the world turn risk into a path for growth. With 45,000 employees serving more than 140 countries and markets, the company provides help to its clients around the world in converting risks into growth opportunities.
Its goals are to make sure that employee benefits are used in the best way, to develop skills and invest in them, as well as make sure that the available resources are used in the best way for the institutions and their employees.
"I am happy to cooperate with the CPYP to help it select future leaders using the global Saville Assessment Tools that are used to recruit, build and lead youth talent and prepare them for future leadership positions," said General Manager of Willis Towers Watson in Egypt Hamed Mabrouk.
“We have served the Egyptian market for the past 20 years, and through our long experience in the Egyptian market, we have realised the need in the market to change the way administrative authorities deal with human capital as it is the main driver of success," Mabrouk noted.
From his side, a Member of Parliament and Head of the Training and Development Committee at CPYP Ahmed Fathy said that "the protocol will constitute a milestone in the process of creating political work cadres in Egypt, for the first time the scientific method will be used to measure the capabilities and skills of young people involved in political work and public work, this is to achieve a greater understanding of the talents and capabilities they possess and to be recruited later to serve the nation in all areas of decision-making."
"It is important to have scientific tools that can understand and analyse the capabilities of young leaders, in order to make the best use of their efforts, enthusiasm and to employ their energy in the right place," said Fathy.
Moreover, Fathi added that "the CPYP will continue to prove every day that it is a cornerstone in development of the political situation in Egypt and that it transfers to a rank befitting a country of the size and importance of Egypt. Egypt's youth are its wealth and its weapon in comprehensive development and its protection by all means."
In addition to its members that affiliated from about 25 political parties, the CPYP also includes more than 40 independent youth working in politics and they do not belong to any party.
According to the joint press release, the CPYP reflects the state of diversity in the Egyptian street, as it includes in its membership political youth and political parties from all directions, from the far right to the far left, who support and oppose their various political ideas.
