Apprenticeships have a big part to play in this skills improvement. They increase employee retention and current employees can also be upskilled through an apprenticeship programme, so you can train them alongside any additional recruitment drives. 73% of apprentices we’ve trained are still in the same company, with some companies reporting over 85% retention of apprentices.
Support throughout your e-commerce business
Direct to consumer retail is projected to grow more than 19% in 2021. We can support in every area of your retail business, from the (virtual) shop floor to business support to team leaders through to warehouse and logistics staff.
Our apprenticeships develop industry-leading skills and behaviours in team members, supervisors, retail managers and warehouse operatives.
Recruiting to retain
With many of our current Employer Partners seeing a retention rate of 77% from those apprentices they have recruited specifically for an apprenticeship role, the opportunity to attract, train and retain an effective team can be achieved with apprenticeships.
