Apprenticeships are a tried and true workforce development strategy that have paid dividends for companies who use the program. Employers who utilize apprentices report higher productivity, higher retention rates and a substantial return on investment. As the economy continues to grow, business leaders across all industries are in the best position to tell their success stories: that apprenticeships fulfill their need to create a pipeline of skilled workers to help them take their companies to the next level.
Apprenticeship LEADERs have joined the U.S. Department of Labor campaign and have committed to expanding apprenticeship opportunities across the United States. The Department’s apprenticeship expansion initiative engages businesses and partners across all industries to discuss the value of apprenticeships and to encourage greater adoption of it as a workforce and talent development strategy.
