Over the last 18 months, HR professionals have seen many changes in the workforce – unfortunately, the elimination of the skills gap was not one of them.  With “The Great Resignation” happening across all occupations including HR, a significant emphasis both internally and externally on DE&I initiatives, and the growth in emerging occupations, HR professionals find themselves at a loss for how to get the best talent into their organizations.  Apprenticeships can be the answer to getting the talent you need now.  A cost-effective proven method for recruiting and retaining talent that delivers higher productivity, apprenticeships can be the answer for many occupations, in many industries, regardless of the size of the employer – including HR. Learn how this talent development system can work for you.

  • Understand the basics of establishing an apprenticeship program.
  • Identify the costs and benefits of implementing an apprenticeship program.
