Deployment Time
Two weeks


A well-known client of ours knows the importance of engaging talent early. As one of the 10 largest-volume supermarket chains in the country, they employ a workforce of over 225,000 people, and a large percentage of their employees are 18 years of age or younger. In fact, over 80% of their team members in C-suite positions started their careers with the company in high school.


With the need to grow and improve their early talent pipeline, this fast-growing supermarket corporation approached Tallo to help change the perception of what opportunity really looks like at their company and how their part-time junior positions can transition into a wide array of internships and career fields.

The company takes pride in fostering diversity and inclusion in the workplace, so they also asked Tallo to help diversify the racial and ethnic profile of their college interns at corporate headquarters.

“Tallo is like LinkedIn, but for younger generations. It allows

businesses such as ours to find and message these kids

and try to engage them in either careers at a college, or

employment with organizations.”
