Have you got a job role that needs filling? Are your current staff so bogged down with work they are becoming less productive?
I have the solution… Have you ever considered hiring an apprentice?
Now, I don’t know of any CEO’s who don’t want to keep business costs down. What better way to do this than hiring an apprentice? They are cheap, easy to train and very mouldable.
Here are a few reasons as to why hiring an apprentice is essential for positive company growth, which is everyone’s dream, right?
- Hiring an apprentice is much easier than the ordinary recruitment process thanks to high quality training providers out there. Why not have a stress-free recruiting process and go with apprenticeship schemes?
- Not only will an apprenticeship give a young person a job, you are also doing your bit for the UK, reducing the number of unemployed. By giving a young person a new opportunity, you are getting them on the career ladder and on the way to a brighter future.
- What better way to free up staff by hiring an apprentice? Your existing staff can take on more responsibility, therefore, you will have an increase in productivity within the company. Staff can pass some of their basic work onto the apprentice, allowing them to spend more time on more complex tasks within the workplace
- Apprentices are a great way to boost company’s morale. A fresh, young face can offer innovative ideas, whilst also bringing a different perspective to the table. Apprentices are often keen to learn and succeed, learning on the job and energising your existing workforce.
So, by hiring an apprentice you can grow your team and at the same time keep the costs down; they are a reliable investment. You will maintain high quality staff by investing time into apprentices, who have learnt on the job, alongside growing your team with lower costs. You, as a boss, can develop new talent to meets your company’s specific needs. They are moulded to your requirements, and will remain flexible.
All in all, we say hire the apprentice! Apprenticeships are fantastic schemes to improve your company’s growth and productivity.
Best of luck.
