As Baby Boomers retire at a staggering rate of 6,000 employees a day, employers are increasingly focusing on strategies that strengthen their succession plans and identify, acquire, and retain top talent. That’s where Northeastern comes in.
Northeastern offers a model that is a stronger and more successful way for employers to identify and engage with skilled talent and remain competitive as the jobs of today and tomorrow continue to grow in areas such as technology, engineering, and healthcare. The university’s century-old approach to education, rooted in its signature co-op program, combines classroom learning with real-world experience. Graduates head into the workforce having up to 18 month of career-related experience and a deeper understanding of their chosen profession and the world of work.
Studies show that full-time hires of co-op students have stronger retention rates at both the two- and five-year marks, which saves these companies money and improves productivity. By offering a co-op program or hiring our graduates, companies can tap into a talent pool with the experience and the combination of skill sets necessary to drive success in the global business world.
