Apprenticeship programs prepare workers to compete in today’s changing economy. It’s a great idea to implement a program in your workplace because it’s a win-win-win situation that benefits employers, employees, and workforce systems by keeping up with advancing technologies, innovations in training, and developments in human resource management. Take a look at what I mean:
- Employers will have lower turnover rates, lower costs of recruitment, an increase in productivity, and have a safer workplace.
- Employees are guaranteed a paycheck that will increase as training progresses, will get hands-on training (while simultaneously earning a degree), have a career with a competitive salary, accumulate little educational debt, and will earn an industry-recognized credential.
- Workforce systems will help businesses thrive by building a skilled and productive workforce.

However, they can also be used in growing industries like healthcare, information technology, transportation, and energy. Are you considering creating an apprenticeship program for your business?
