top new grad employers

This manufacturer of household products like Pampers and Tide is also a training ground for future CEOs of some of the world's biggest companies. Just ask General Electric's Jeffrey Immelt, Hewlett Packard's Meg Whitman, or New Balance's Rob DeMartini, all of whom worked at P&G as young professionals.

The success of junior employees reflects the company's focus on hands-on training, as well as more formal learning via online programs and live classes. P&G actively looks for future leaders so it can start grooming them early for a lasting career with the company. "P&G sees leadership development as a long-term business strategy and grows talent with the same creativity and discipline used in every other part of the business," says Scott Reid, associate director for Global Talent Supply. --B.B.
