Apprenticeships given seal of Approval by Employers in a recent survey

A recent survey of 555 employers by Redshift Research has endorsed the Apprenticeship scheme in England and highlighted the benefits that employers are seeing on a daily basis as they look to take their businesses forward.

Feedback stated that ‘Apprenticeships can improve employee loyalty to a company as well as increase business opportunities – so reckons the government, which has rolled out nine industry-designed degree apprenticeships to bring together the best of higher and vocational education’. Employers around the country are increasingly seeing the value of hiring Apprentices as the young people become pivotal to forming the pipeline of their future talent and allowing them to mould their workforce exactly how they like.

The report also discussed the loyalty that Apprentices offer a business as 56 per cent of those surveyed say that their Apprentices stay longer than other recruits in the business. Within this group, 59 per cent say that this is due to the training that is provided and more than half believe that it is down to the Apprentices having the ability to learn and grow in the business from the bottom up.

Many employers also commended the fact that taking on Apprentices marks their business out from the crowd, with a third saying that by taking on Apprentices they have been able to differentiate themselves from their competitors.

Now is the time to recruit an Apprentice and provide your business with an innovative edge whilst setting the foundations for your future workforce.
