Ever wanted to see how your early talent development program compares to others? Perhaps you’re getting questions from senior management on what “other” programs are doing?

The LDP Survey (both the North America, and Europe editions) offers organizations an opportunity to benchmark their practices against peers at no cost. The last edition of the survey captured data on 183 programs from 84 participant organizations.

Developed in consultation with early talent program managers and recruiters from around the world, The LDP Survey has been collecting comprehensive data on compensation, recruiting, training, retention, budgeting, off-boarding, staffing and program evaluation practices in early career talent development programs every two years since 2015.

In 2023, LDP Connect also launched the LDP Survey Europe Edition: Survey of Graduate Development Program Practices for programs primarily based in Europe.
