Summer help is on the way!
When considering both today's workload and tomorrow's workforce, participating in an internship program is an excellent way to facilitate immediate and future success within your company.
Find future employees:
With the inevitability of baby boomers retiring, now is the perfect time to start training staff to fill the lower level positions that become available after internal promotions occur.
“Try out” candidate:
The best part of buying a new car is the test drive! You get a chance to try something out before fully committing. Internships are great for “trying out” an employee without having the obligation of a full-time commitment.
Increase productivity of senior staff:
With a spare set of hands around to perform lower level tasks, senior level employees have time to concentrate on the more arduous tasks.
Increase employee retention rate:
Most college graduates are unsure of what they want to do when they graduate due to lack of industry experience. Through internship programs, candidates can get a feel for the environment and work load.
Having a millennial onboard can be very beneficial. A fresh set of eyes and hands in a stagnant setting can spark innovation and productivity.
Low cost labor:
Hiring a full-time employee may not be in the budget, but a temporary internship can be an inexpensive solution. The student has access to real-time industry experience at a much lower cost to the employer.
Internships provide a way to improve community relations by helping to shape the young minds of today into our future coworkers of tomorrow!
The most effective way to plan for a better future is to be proactive today. Don't miss out on some of the great catches we have in our candidate pool!
