FixFirm: Supporting National Apprenticeship Week 2019
FixFirm are proud to support National Apprenticeship Week 2019 and strongly believe in investing and developing young people through UK Apprenticeships.
Over the past 4 years, we have offered school and college leavers Apprenticeships within sales, marketing (social media), customer service, accounts and warehousing, ranging from 12 months up to 18 months. At present, a third of our current workforce are in an Apprenticeship or have completed one!
How do Apprentices benefit your business?
Hiring an Apprentice is a productive and effective way for any organisation to grow talent and develop a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce.
Research has shown that employers who have an established Apprenticeship programme reported that productivity in their workplace had improved by 76% whilst 75% reported that apprenticeships improved the quality of their product or service.
Other benefits that apprenticeships contribute to your organisation include:
- thousands of organisations are employing apprentices now
- 90% of apprentices stay on in their place of work after completing an apprenticeship
- there's a wide selection of apprenticeships available, covering lots of different job roles within a organisation
- you can adapt the training your apprentice receives according to the needs of your organisation
- an apprenticeship allows you to diversify and freshen up your workforce
- you can employ an apprentice from the age of 16 up to any age and from any background
