Healthcare firm aims to inspire investment in young talent

30th April 2015

Sheffield-based healthcare company, B.

Braun Medical Ltd, is joining forces with Sheffield Hallam University in a bid to encourage companies in the city to invest in the next generation of business leaders. A briefing event was held by Sheffield Hallam University last week at the Sheffield Business School, to showcase the Corporate Degree Programme to other companies from the city. Set to launch in 2016, the programme gives companies the chance to attract and retain talented graduates for their business. Organisations can sponsor undergraduates during their time at university while providing training in their business, meaning at the end of the course the company benefits from employing a work-ready graduate who thoroughly understands the way they work. Hans Hux, Group Chief Executive of B. Braun Medical Ltd, said: -The Corporate Degree programme provides great opportunities not only for young people to get into the world of work but for organisations looking to grow, too. -Bringing young talent into the business is a fantastic way to generate new ideas, spark innovation and nurture potential leaders. We're 100 per cent behind the scheme and hopefully we can inspire other companies in and around Sheffield to get involved as well. Please contact Jo Daley at Sheffield Business School on 0114 225 5081 or email: sbsbusiness@shu.ac.uk to find out more.
