Having an efficient onboarding strategy in place from the start may facilitate your new apprentice in settling into their new work role. Make sure you communicate with your new apprentice from the start, assisting them in seeing how their contributions fit into the larger aims and objectives of your business.
To get started, it is good to propose office visits, team meetings, and an introduction to your company. It’s imperative to remember that this may be an apprentice’s first work, so make them feel as at ease as possible. Overall, a good onboarding process may lead to enhanced employee retention, productivity, and work satisfaction for your new apprentice. Meaning they are more likely to stay on and work for you after their apprenticeship has finished or if they are a current employee, they could be more open to further training and open to more roles within the business.
