At Ace we are inspired to support the development of talent within the newspaper and magazine industry. In particular we view development of young talent as critically important. To aid this goal we need to know the views this group have on their present career development.
In June 2015 Ace sent out a survey inviting employees aged from 18 to 32 years of age to tell us how they felt the industry, their employer and their immediate management were contributing to their career.“Over 52% of respondents viewed their line manager as very helpful or extremely helpful with their career development planning”
This is significantly positive although we are concerned that almost 19% of respondents viewed the same question very differently noting that their line manager was not all helpful.
