Why An Apprentice Could Be Your Best Employee

November 18, 2013 |  by  |  Linkedin Blog

With today’s high unemployment hitting the UK’s young the hardest, many of them are looking to join companies that will invest in their training & development.

But, with many of these young people having nothing but the qualifications behind them and no experience, what use are they to your company?

The answer is Apprenticeships.

One of the biggest benefits of having an apprentice join your company is that it helps create a dedicated and loyal workforce.

As an apprentice, I know that the majority of apprentices are young school/college learners, meaning they have plenty of energy with which to learn the ways of your business as you help them climb the career ladder within your organisation.

Many companies feel hesitant in hiring an apprentice as they believe an apprentice will not be a positive move for the company.

As an apprentice, I completely disagree. Apprentices may not have any actual workplace experience, but they can offer a fresh perspective and new ideas, which are just as valuable to a growing business.

Young people often have strong technology skill which come from using computers for using social networking sites from a very early age, they can use this knowledge to build a competitive advantage.

With so many positive reasons to hire an apprentice, maybe it’s time for you to hire one.

The results will be long-term beneficial and financially advantageous.
