A recent article published by NACE discusses the relationship between rotation programmes for graduates and their positive effect on retention rates. The NACE 2016 Recruiting Benchmark Survey was conducted among 233 NACE Employer members and revealed that employers who offer their graduates a rotational programme reported elevated retention rates. Up to 43.8% of employers use rotational programmes for graduates with larger employers being more likely to have a programme in place. The majority of rotational programmes are for a period of 1-2 years and of these three quarters of employers in the USA offer rotational segments in different departments (i.e. graduates are rotated between different departments within the business) whilst two thirds rotate graduate hires through different job rotations. Fewer employers make use of location rotations i.e. rotating graduates to parts of the business in different regions and/or countries.
