ABSTRACT
The article reports on the need for employers in Great Britain to maintain their graduate recruitment schemes in order to avoid trouble in the future. Research showed that majority of companies have cut back on recruitment and graduate schemes are one area to come under scrutiny. According to Philip Krinks, partner and managing director at the Boston Consulting Group, companies which totally stopped graduate recruitment are going to create a demographic problem in three to five years from now.
