About this Episode

How does a food grocer from Maine launch a college recruiting program that attracted graduates from prestigious colleges and universities? In this episode, we explore one company’s innovative, counterintuitive approach to hiring high potential college graduates into an accelerated learning program.

The program was called the Retail Management Trainee Program (RMT), an ordinary name that produced extraordinary results.

In this episode, we discuss how the RMT program:

  • Produced a generation of CEO’s and senior executives for Delhaize-Ahold
  • Promoted diversity objectives
  • Has evolved and flourished for 40+ years
  • What your organization can do to transform their college recruiting process to achieve extraordinary results.
