Abstract:

The second of two articles, reports the findings of a qualitative research project investigating good practice in recruiting, training and retaining new graduates. The research took place in 15 UK public- and private-sector organizations including the NHS in Scotland, KPMG Peat Marwick, GKN, Sema and Girobank. Examines how to get the most from the opportunity for intensive development. Develops ideas on how employers can successfully and quickly develop new graduates into effective business people, adding value to the organization and its customers. Focuses on the important role of the direct manager in coaching and bringing the new graduate up to speed. Also highlights how the group of new graduates can be used to build a supportive peer group and a network of contacts across the organization to help get things done.
