Early Talent Development Survey- Take part now!

Early Talent Development Survey- Take part now!


We are pleased to inform you that the Capp Early Talent Development Survey is now live, ready for you and your organisation to take part in!


Existing research reveals that 98% of young employees* believe they are responsible for driving their own development. The fact that young employees- our apprentices, interns and graduates- believe in ‘driving their own development’ is phenomenal. It suggests a generation crammed full of initiative, personal responsibility and growth orientation- strengths that we see in bucket loads amongst the apprentices and graduates we recruit and develop.


The question, however, is which direction are they driving their development?


We have created the Early Talent survey to provide direction for organisations that employ apprentices, interns and graduates. We want to reveal which development activities are most important for developing core capabilities and how early talent, their managers and the business can prioritise the activities that matter most.


We want to reveal how development priorities differ for apprentices, interns and graduates and identify the areas where expectations differ most from common experience.


Why? To help early talent drive their own development in the right direction- knowing where to focus their energies.


Take part now!


By inviting your apprentices, graduates, graduate alumni and early talent managers to take part, you will receive the following benefits:

  • Early access to our survey findings, describing trends in early talent development behaviour across industries and sectors (all organisations will be anonymous within our published results)
  • Survey results for your own organisation- sharing both high level themes and full survey data and crucially what to do next
  • Analysis of the impact of your development approach on your early talent’s engagement, loyalty, and perception of you as an employer
  • Your data benchmarked against other organisations- giving you a rating of how well your organisation is meeting the needs and preferences of your early talent.


To encourage completion of the survey, every person who takes part will enter into a draw to win a £150 cash prize.


What to do next?

If you think your organisation might like to take part, drop Emma Trenier or Gurpal Minhas a line at or  – we can tell you more and discuss the best way of sharing the survey with your employees and collating your business results.


Alternatively, if you would like to personally take part:  


  1. Follow this link if you are an apprentice,  intern, graduate or ex- graduate
  2. Follow this link you directly or indirectly manage early talent employees


We look forward to sharing our results with you in the coming months.
