The Unsettling Reality about Talent Retention


Today we met our 40 new Back2businessship delegates to for their programme induction which kicks off in March.

Some interesting facts:

  • The ages of the delegates span 3 decades our youngest is 36 and our oldest is 56!
  • There is a 50/50 split of PR/comms and marketing professionals 
  • 30% are BAME
  • The average career break is 8 years with the minimum 3 year and the maximum 16 years!
  • Over 75% of our previous delegates have found roles!

CEO & Founder of f1 Amanda Fone concluded today: ” We need to get to a tipping point where we have normalised returners and any job can be full-time or flexible working”.
