2:25pm-3:10pm Early Succession Planning with New Hires

General Session

Talent challenges continue to become more complex--finding the right talent and keeping that talent is a top priority in organizations today. Who would have thought that we must be highly strategic with our college recruiting?  Well, savvy professionals recognize the potential that internship programming can bring to your talent acquisition efforts.  Did you know that approximately 63% of US companies convert their internships to full-time hires?  And…the retention impact of these hires is critical to an effective talent development effort.

This session provides participants with innovative programming recommendations to maximize the investment into early entry talent so that those "new hires" become engaged with the organization for long-term retention efforts. 

In this session, you will learn:

  • Begin with the “end in mind” and see how early hires contribute to long term talent sustainability
  • Measure success with informative analytics
  • Develop programs to capture talent earlier and retain talent longer
