Welcome to our Early Careers Week home page

Welcome to the Early Careers Special Edition home page. Our special edition runs for a whole week and takes a look at the key Early Careers issues and trends in 2017.

HRreview is this week taking an in-depth look at how the area is developing quickly as apprenticeships change the paths people take after they leave the educational system, and companies introduce early careers strategy and training into their businesses to mentor and foster talent to bridge the skills gaps they have in their organisation.

Many companies now also recognise the importance of integrating social mobility into the workforce, not only for commercial reasons but also to highlight corporate social responsibility and improve employer brand of choice.

This edition includes exclusive content from HR professionals speaking at our leading early careers summit including James Thickett from PepsiCo, Philip Paige from JP Morgan and Jeffery Lovejoy from the FDM Group.

All this and much more. We hope you enjoy the issue.
