Traditional tech hiring has sometimes created artificial barriers that excluded talented, yet overlooked members of the tech community.
However, leveraging an adult apprenticeship program allows employers to widen the top of the recruitment funnel to source, hire and develop promising individuals who have met basic requirements, and who are on a path to learn even more with the support of a qualified program intermediary.
Apprentices have higher 1-year and 5-year retention rates than employees hired through traditional pipelines. Through TechPoint’s partnership with an intermediary partner, NEW, accelerated skills training is offered in the following five roles as a cost-effective strategy for attracting and retaining diverse talent.
