By now, we are all aware of the impact a leading-edge development program can have on the attraction, retention and the growth of graduates – but the question that is still most often asked is “what more can be done” and “what are the trends that can help to ensure the best return on investment”?
At Fusion Graduate Development, we are addressing the holistic needs of Graduates, and we now have Australia’s leading online customised Graduate Portal to complement and support the best Graduate development programs.
The second cycle of graduate recruitment is well under way, with most applicants having to complete cognitive assessments, video interviews and assessment centres as part of a standard recruitment process. What seems to be a trend across companies is the amount of drop offs of candidates reneging on offers, even if previously accepted.
Now that recruitment is wrapping up, for most Organisations, it’s time to shift focus to conducting program reviews and checking in on the health of YOUR graduate program!
The AAGE Industry Awards have crept up on us quickly, and I cannot believe it is under a month away! The Australian Association of Graduate Employers, or better known as the AAGE, is hosting their awards event this year in Sydney which means Fusion will be having an enjoyable holiday to the Opera House this year.
Fusion’s 2017 Masterclass series saw some great discussions and sharing of individual experiences and challenges amongst participants. Over forty people attended the Melbourne event, from a range of private/public/large and small organisations, and there were similarly strong numbers in Sydney and Brisbane.
