Team Smucker Love was assigned the task of understanding recent graduates’ work environment priorities by the J. M. Smucker company. Through primary and secondary research, the team collaborated and discovered a variety of factors that are important to recent college graduates, as well as other millennials. This research seeks to define a few elements that can sway a recent college graduate whether to ultimately accept a position offered to them. Identified were five key areas of improvement at the target client, the J.M. Smucker Company, including technology in the workplace, work-life balance, workplace layout, work place culture, and amenities offered within the workplace. These factors are discussed in-depth and include recommendations within the paper.
