Understanding the Importance of Developing Young Professionals

Two companies in Buffalo and Niagara have been recognized as being at the forefront of developing young professionals in their employ.


KeyBank and Remedy Intelligent Staffing not only believe in their respective workforces, they are investing in the future of the young professionals who work for them. As just two of the many companies who have joined with the Buffalo-Niagara Partnership Young Professional Development Program, BN360, they are putting action behind that support.


With similar engagement and development beliefs, KeyBank, Remedy and BN360 operate both internally and within the community to encourage young people to work, play and live in the Buffalo Niagara region.


Here are just a few ways these companies are making a difference not only in the lives of their employees but the Buffalo and Niagara communities as well:


Community Involvement

KeyBank and Remedy Intelligent Staffing are committed to being engaged with the local community. Remedy has partnered with Say Yes to Education Buffalo to assist both high school and college students in job interview preparation and making adjustments to the working world.


KeyBank also supports the community’s nonprofits in a variety of ways that benefit the entire area.


Workforce Development

One of the key components of the partnership that exists between KeyBank, Intelligent Staffing and BN360 is their desire to help young professionals develop. These companies believe that the young professionals of today will become the senior executives of tomorrow.


KeyBank provides its people with a number of ways to grow through a series of internal programs designed to enhance both career development and engagement. KeyBank also gives its young professionals numerous opportunities to meet and learn from senior leadership in both formal and informal settings.



Developing their young professionals isn’t something that Remedy and KeyBank pay lip service to. They put concrete actions behind their words. For these companies, growing their young workers is an all-in proposition and something they are dedicated to. And that commitment is company wide, from the most senior executives to the newest hires.


When young professional know they have the support of senior executives and management, it makes all the difference in how they feel about and do their jobs. And that support can take many forms, such as panels, mentoring and seminars in order to make professional development personal.
