Develop employability to retain talent: the surprising paradox with the new generation

Written on 02 October 2014.


The survey was conducted at the end of 2013 and questioned 1,480 young French and international graduates from different academic backgrounds (sciences, engineering, political sciences, business). The results show that the more employers train and assist young graduates with their personal and professional development, the more loyal their recruits become.

Here are some of the highlights from the survey…
• New talents are highly demanding with respect to the intellectual content of their jobs.
• Young graduates are satisfied overall with their primary career objective.
• Young graduates are less satisfied in regards to their expectations for international opportunities, transparent and honest management, and a competitive salary.
• Young graduates are prepared to leave their jobs if they don’t feel that it is beneficial to their long-term development.
