Alumni Memberships

Would you like to create a strong alumni network among your employees as leading companies like McKinsey or Citigroup have done? You can offer your departing employees a Cannobe membership that is tied to your company.

It is an incentive to stay connected with your employees and their endeavors. We offer a tailored program that will help you stay in touch with your former employees.

Skill shortages and demographic changes are leading to longer lasting professional careers, especially in management. The value of employees who have collected decades of hands-on professional experience is increasing. 

It is a pool of talent that offers tremendous potential.

Cannobe – Club of the Experienced Professionals is the platform where companies can stay in touch with their former employees and their activities.

Cannobe inspires, creates connections, and helps build a community of current and retired professionals. Are you interested in learning more?

Contact us, we are looking forward to getting to know you, hearing about your ideas and creating a program that is right for you!
