Accenture Strategy’s 2017 U.S. College Graduate Employment Study reveals that the class of 2017–the first crop of Generation Z (Gen Z) to enter the workforce—holds traditional work values with a digital spin. And for the first time in years, there is an uptick in the number of new grads wanting to work for large companies, with a 37 percent increase over last year.
The class of 2017 is willing to commit and ready to roll up its sleeves, but in return new grads want an engaging employee experience that takes full advantage of their degree. Our analysis shows that large employers are best positioned to provide the employee experience new grads desire: a clear career path and stability, training and mentoring, and competitive compensation.
