OGFG – July Technical Talk – Sign of the Times: The Graduate Conundrum
July 19, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
In the current challenging market one of the first areas to suffer are graduate programs and graduate recruitment. This responds to immediate needs and pressures without recognizing the future impact when growth returns, i.e. the challenge to rebuild without breadth, core capabilities, Company knowledge and young talent to support the expansion. The better solution is to invest in their development now to support the future, but how do you make them effective and keep them engaged and busy. This presentation looks at some of the issues we face with the current market and how you might develop effectively for the future.
