Overview: The long-term success of all organizations require a diverse body of talented employees that can bring fresh ideas, perspectives and views to their work. is Enabling your managers to capitalize on a representative mixture of genders, cultures, ages and lifestyles to respond to business opportunities requires new approaches.

In this program we will examine how a well-run apprenticeship program can be used attract, build skills, and retain a more diverse workforce. Finding a diverse population of candidates with the right skills and abilities can be achieved via apprenticeships. Apprenticeships are especially useful in helping candidates from disadvantaged communities who may not have the skills or knowledge normally need to fill a career opportunity.

A well-designed apprenticeship program provides both mentoring from an experienced, knowledgeable, incumbent employee and a supportive community These two element helps reduce job related anxiety, forges strong relationships, and reduces turnover by helping to weave new employees into the fabric of their employer company.

On-the-job training keeps apprentices learning new skills and gaining new accomplishments, building their own confidence and receiving appreciation form co-workers. Offering a clear, well-structured career path as an alternative to a traditional, debt-laden college degree attracts a wide range of candidates from all communities.
