Breakfast Seminar – Success & Development Profiling and the customisation of Development Programs


During our recent Australia-wide Masterclass series, Fusion became aware of a considerable demand from Graduate Managers for information around both Success & Development Profiling and the customisation of Development Programs. In response to this, earlier this month the Fusion Development team delivered a breakfast seminar to 20 of the leading graduate managers in Melbourne, in which we launched the latest Profiling and Development research analysis, showcasing the Top 5 Graduate Profiling findings.

Emma Gladwell, Graduate Programs Manager presented findings from an analysis she has conducted, of recruitment data collected over the previous 2 years. Seminar participants were then given an explanation by Jum Lamont, Development Programs Manager, of how their graduate programs can be customised to ensure their graduates will develop the behavioural preferences that have been identified by their organisations as important.

The Q & A session at the conclusion of Jum and Emma’s presentations indicated that grad managers are keen to better utilise the Profiling information they have obtained during their recruitment process. Through improved analysis of this profiling information, they will be able to ensure that the development programs they are delivering to their graduates are targeting the behavioural preferences that have been identified in the selection process as significant to their organisations.


For a further insight into the Profiling and Development research project, refer to Emma’s summary in this edition of Fuse or visit us at our AAGE stand for a copy of the full report.
If you would like to discuss customisation of your organisation’s graduate development program, and how to utilise success profiling data, please contact: Jum Lamont or Emma Gladwell.

This proactive group of Melbourne Grad Managers are keen to meet regularly during the year.
