When choosing a company to work for, employees are starting to place a priority on which potential employers have the best alumni networks. Why? Employees recognize that their careers will include a number of employers and as such want to choose the one that will provide advancement throughout the course of their career – a corporate alumni network is a tremendous reflection of a companies intention to have a long-term relationship with their employees, even after they leave.

Where an employee chooses to work becomes more than only a place to garner some new skills and a paycheck, it is also a place to build a foundation for their career. The primary reason the best Alumni networks success is the importance they place on alumni programming to drive continued career services to ex-employees is now part of a companies total workforce strategy.

In compiling a list of the 10 best alumni networks, a number of factors were considered. The volume of recruits that return to the organization is a great reflection of the culture but that alone does not give the full picture. In addition, we used social engagement on sites such as LinkedIn, glass door reviews and not only the volume of their Alumni population but also the proportion of the base included in senior positions.

In addition, we spoke to a number of individual Alumni and Employees of various organizations that took part in our surveys to identify what drives alumni engagement: 2017 State Of Corporate Alumni Survey. and our follow on survey considering the Unarticulated Values of A Corporate Alumni Program.
