Get a fresh take on developing and retaining talent in this eye-opening conversation with Natalie Miller, Regional Director of Apprenti. She and host Brandon Laws discuss a new perspective on the age-old concept of apprenticeships but with an unexpected twist. Listen in to learn how your business could take advantage of this innovative employee development initiative.



  • When we think of apprenticeships, we often think of those for trade jobs, but apprenticeships can also be used for what we call β€œnon-trades,” essentially career paths that we don’t commonly associate with apprenticeships.
  • Among the current talent coming into the workplace, only 30% have four-year degrees.
  • Apprentices allow employees to get on-the-job training β€” working with managers and a mentor, understanding what works and what doesn't, and eventually being hired into an entry-level role.
  • Organizations that focus on career mobility tend to show increased employee retention.
  • Think about the purpose and functionality of the four-year degree requirement and consider other pathways for those who might not have been included in your talent acquisition process.
