Are your young professionals ready to contribute to your business?  Our research indicates that they need additional training to effectively make the transition from university to high-performing team members.

  • The majority of executives contend that today’s young professionals are less prepared for success in the business world than their counterparts 15 years ago. According to these leaders, among the critical competencies young professionals lack are emotional intelligence, coachability, ability to focus and communication skills.

  • Corporate leaders note a decline in professionalism among early career employees.

  • Although many young professionals agree that they did not have the full range of skills to success when they graduated, a lack of professionalism may be a “blind spot” for many early career employees.
