ManpowerGroup - multinational world leader in innovative workforce solutions - and PLB - Edutainment Hub in the world of eSports founded by Christian Vieri and Bernardo Corradi - present a training and entertainment project for the professional development of young talents in the world of video games.

In a moment of great expansion of eSports, the former Azzurri Christian Vieri and Bernardo Corradi through the launch of PLB present a unique and innovative project that aims to accompany young video game enthusiasts towards a professional career thanks to educational content and of entertainment.

Not a team of pro-players, but a community open to everyone to help the most talented prospects grow through training, method and psychophysical well-being.

In three words: Power, Leadership & Balance (of which PLB is an acronym). At an international level, there are more and more studies that highlight how gaming can favor the development of fundamental soft skills also in professional life and career paths.

In 2019 there were 17 million people in Italy who have played video games. ManpowerGroup with a history spanning over 70 years, has always created integrated solutions for the match between supply and demand of work and today it specifically targets gamers, one of the most active and growing communities during the Covid-19 pandemic, at aim to promote the professional paths of young talents who can boast a unique combination of digital skills and soft skills, increasingly requested and sought after by companies.

Thus was born the Gaming Skills Translator, an assessment that allows people to identify their skills and receive suggestions on how to continue to develop them and "translate" them into employability.

“With this project we want to enhance the skills of video game enthusiasts, providing them with useful suggestions to further develop them so that they can also be used in a professional environment. The future of recruiting also hinges on "transferable skills", skills that can be transferred from one area to another and that can make a difference in the world of work. The partnership with PLB allows us to count on the utmost competence and experience in the world of digital gaming. It is a unique and innovative project that also promotes the professional development of young talents together with Christian Vieri and Bernardo Corradi, our Talent Ambassadors. Finally, the aim is also to help companies understand how important it is to evaluate soft skills in less conventional ways and the possibility of translating them into skills that can be spent in the company ", said Riccardo Barberis, CEO of ManpowerGroup Italia.

“PLB will give all video game fans a new meeting place where they can look for expert advice, training programs and tools to improve their level. We want to tell the kids that to transform passion into something more serious, you need method, commitment, seriousness and attention to detail, as it was for us with football. PLB will allow everyone to play not FOR us but WITH us! We will have fun ... ", declared Christian Vieri.

" As a father I realized how video games are an increasingly present component in the life of children and an important social tool. " - said Bernardo Corradi instead - "With PLB we want to allow the most talented kids to emerge thanks to work and constant commitment, but in a wider way for all gamers to improve themselves day after day. PLB will be accessible to everyone, boys, girls, very young but not only because everyone can improve and no matter the starting point but the desire to grow and have fun. "

And on the partnership the two founders of the project have declared : “It is a pleasure and an honor to launch the project with a partner like ManpowerGroup Italia by our side. From the first meeting we immediately established an important understanding and thanks to this agreement we will have a company able to support us in the many projects, in the choice of the members of the Youth Team (you can apply from tomorrow following the Instagram page of the project) and in the give new and important professional opportunities to our community by helping them to enhance the soft skills of each one ".

Alongside the educational commitment, the project will also be destined for entertainment thanks to special initiatives, challenges on social networks and interactions with the world of football and sport. Christian Vieri recently presented the Twitch version of BoboTv, which will constantly dialogue with PLB to amplify the direct confrontation with the community of videogame and sports enthusiasts.

The goal of BoboTv's synergy with PLB will be to create a real "digital oratory" where the very young can find the "training ground" to grow as e-athletes, streamers and casters and where fans can compete.

Inside PLB the "Varsity" will give everyone, at any level, the opportunity to interact with professionals in the sector, while the "Youth Team U18" will tell the story of five players, selected from the boys and girls who will be chosen in the coming weeks, and their path of growth within the eSports world, without the pressures of competitive results, but with the support of many professionals and dedicated programs.

Cristian Vieri and Bernardo Corradi mett their experiences were available to enthusiasts, and will serve as an example for the youngest. Thanks to their brilliant careers in football, they will in turn help the talents of Italian eSports to undertake equally brilliant careers.

Growing up while having fun, because PLB will also be entertainment and confrontation. An "Italian cantera" of eSports with two exceptional coaches, who will combine the professional aspect of Esports with the more playful one.
