Progressing and Retaining Young Talent: A Guide for Employers

This factsheet will enable organisations to support young employees to develop the skills needed and to help keep them with the organisation. Ensuring a clear talent pipeline linked to the workforce development strategy that enables young employees’ progression to more advanced roles is vital to ensure maximum return on the investment in developing home-grown talent. It will also minimise recruitment costs and help retain the bespoke skills and expertise that young employees have developed.

This factsheet was developed as part of Business in the Community’s Future Proof campaign, backed by the City & Guilds Group to help employers break down the barriers in their recruitment processes to create quality, accessible jobs for all young people.
