In the dynamic landscape of 2024, organizations are looking to invigorate their early talent initiatives. Focused on combatting the looming skill scarcity, they are making substantial investments in emerging talent, proactively addressing the challenges of tomorrow’s workforce today.

For employers, the paradigm has shifted towards cultivating their own cadre of experts. Whether it be through graduate programs, apprenticeships, or flexible youth employment, fostering emerging talent has become an indispensable component of any comprehensive talent strategy.

As the business environment and workforce demographics undergoes transformation, organisations are actively exploring innovative approaches to connect with crucial new talent.

  • Rethinking early talent programs to focus on building lasting careers rather than mere placements.
  • Placing student preferences at the core of an early career strategy.
  • Enhancing diversity in talent recruitment and promoting social mobility.
