What are The SAGEA Employer Awards 2018?
Now in their ninth year, The SAGEA Employer Awards celebrate the achievements of South Africa’s leading graduate employers. The awards are decided entirely by successful job hunters, who have received confirmed job offers from graduate employers.
The SAGEA Employer Awards 2018 have been developed as part of The SAGEA Candidate Insights Survey 2018. The survey was carried out on behalf of The South African Graduate Employers Association (SAGEA) by the specialist student and graduate research company, High Fliers Research Ltd. Launched in 2010, the survey is conducted on an annual basis to help SAGEA members to review the success of their graduate campaigns and help plan their future recruitment programmes. Research took place from March to May 2018, using an online questionnaire and during this time 2,281 candidates responded.
