Apprenticeships are a cost-effective way to train employees and prepare the next generation of corporate leaders. They have proven to increase productivity, boost employee loyalty and retention, lower staff turnover and associated costs, and create positive ROI. On average, employers with apprenticeship program report a $1.47 benefit for every $1 spent (USDOL). As full-time employees, apprentices contribute toward revenue generation which offsets companies' associated training costs.
Boosting Worker Loyalty
Today's workers expect to change jobs - and employers - many times over the course of their work life. Millennials will change jobs an average of four times during their first decade out of college, compared to about two job changes by Gen Xers in their first ten years out of college. A whopping 93% of employees said they "would stay with a company longer if it invested in my career" (LinkedIn). Apprenticeship and workforce training programs provide workers with the opportunity to learn new skills and get a clear picture of their long-term career pathway in your organization.
