Graduate company loyalty

BrighterBox wanted to know if the urban myth was true - are graduates really as flighty as they're made out to be?
To find out, we asked over 100 graduates on our platform about their company loyalty. How long do they intend to stay at a company for? When do they decide this? What makes them stay? More importantly, what makes them leave?

As well as this, we asked the job perk experts Flexa Careers and Oyster how they keep their top talent. As it turns out, you can't just rely on providing alternative modes of working to keep your employees happy - you must take a human-first approach, consider people's unique challenges, and put the needs of staff above senior leadership's ideals.
