Employers Start Here

We often think of skilled trades such as plumbing, carpentry and electrical when we think of apprenticeships, but there are more than 1,000 occupations that can benefit from apprenticeships, including health care, information technology, advanced manufacturing, transportation and others.

If you have positions with high turnover, an aging but skilled workforce, or significant change in your industry, an apprenticeship can help you. Apprenticeships will help you increase productivity, lower turnover, lower recruitment costs and increase worker safety.

Employers who make an investment in their employees through apprenticeship, on average, enjoy a 150% return on that investment. They also enjoy many other benefits, including:

  • Expanding and diversifying their talent pipeline by drawing on an untapped workforce
  • Creating a competitive edge in a global economy
  • Standardizing training so all workers receive the same national industry-endorsed training
  • Reducing worker compensation                                                     
Did You Know?
For every dollar spent on apprenticeships, employers get $1.50 return on investment.
Apprenticeships Reduce Turnover - 89% of apprentices remain with their company three years after completion.
