The NZAGE Surveys started in 2012 and are run annually providing comprehensive insights into a range of key factors that drive the attraction, recruitment and selection strategies of New Zealand graduate employers.
The surveys provide key insights from graduate and internship talent who share their motivations, level of satisfaction and feedback in relation to their graduate and internship roles. In taking part in these surveys, organisations are able to respond better to the needs of graduates both current and future joining the professional workforce in New Zealand.
50% of employers hire graduates to be future leaders
The Employer Survey surveys all New Zealand employers who hire graduates in all capacities from entry level roles to graduate programmes. The survey collects data on a range of issues including: most used and most effective attraction strategies; what selection techniques an employer uses and how employers keep in touch and onboard new graduates or youth into their organisation.
71% of graduates are planning on staying for three years and more
The Graduate Survey is designed to survey students who have been offered a graduate position with an employer. The survey collects data on a range of issues including: factors influencing choice of employer; most used sources of careers information; reasons for accepting/declining graduate positions; expected length of stay with their employer and views on the best employer in each market sector.
93% of interns are likely to recomend their employer to future interns
The Internship Survey is designed to survey students who have undertaken work experience whilst they are still studying. This includes students completing summer internships, clerkships and part-time so-op placements. The survey collects data on a range of issues including: number and types of internships, most used sources of careers information, reasons for accepting/declining an internship and interest in continuing with their employer.
How do I get a copy?
The surveys are open to all member and non-member graduate and intern employers to complete. Being an NZAGE member entitles you to a significant discount and members who have contributed to a survey will receive the survey free of charge.
For members that have 10 or more graduates and interns who complete these surveys they can also receive a bespoke report. Industry reports are available that combines similar organisations in the same industry. These reports allow members to draw insights directly from the organisations that members are competing most closely with for graduate talent.
Survey information is not made available for suppliers to the industry.
I always enjoy the survey presentation at Summit and receiving the results from the surveys.
