Morgan Manley often hears businesses say that they see the benefits of apprenticeships but their desires never come to fruition because they don’t know where to start to get the relevant information or what to do with this information once they have it, to turn it into a programme. The government incentives to create more apprenticeships are not being realised by many because apprenticeship programmes are currently wrapped in a layer of complexity that businesses simply do not have the time or expertise to break through. With the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy in April 2017 it is now more important than ever for businesses to use apprenticeships to build their talent pipeline. Morgan Manley can help your business set up its own apprenticeship programme through working with them on the below aspects:
Most businesses paying into the apprenticeship levy are looking for ways to reinvest the money that they pay in, back into their talent pool to allow them to grow their skills sets for the future. The key to doing this successfully is in idenitifying where apprenticeships can add value to the businesses, but in also having the necessary structure in place to support those on an apprenticeship and the manpower to absorb the time that they must spend away from the business. Apprenticeships can be a fantastic way to train employees not only at entry level but also as way to upskill and reskill existing staff, and this is an area that employers looking to use their levy must explore in depth.
They most effective way for an organisation to gain maiximum value from their levy will vary from business to business and so Morgan Manley offeres a bespoke service working with employers to create a strategy on how to turn their levy in to productivity.
Morgan Manley understands the apprentice market but, crucially, also understands business. This means that Morgan Manley is well suited to carry out any projects that you may wish to undertake in this field and so if you require a service that is not listed below, please get in contact to see whether we are able to work together to help your business achieve its goals.
An induction programme provides an introduction to the working environment and helps the set-up of the employee within an organisation. Apprentices and graduates in the early stages of their careers do not buy into ‘corporate speak’ and so in order to connect with them and for them to form a connection with your business it is important to deliver information to them in an authentic and informal (but still professional) way, through interactivity and across different platforms. Morgan Manley has experience in designing and delivering induction programmes to incorporate social media and build a community from the moment that graduates and apprentices join the business, allowing them to build a connection with your brand and feel a sense of pride in working for your company.
Job satisfaction and employee engagement is not only achieved through the work that employees do, but also the environment that they do it in. The younger generation of talent want to enjoy work and view it as an extension of their everyday life; in the same way that they may meet up with friends at the weekend, they will go to work Monday – Friday. They are there to get a job done but they want to have fun as they do it whilst still be progressing in their careers, building their network and fulfilling their aspirations. To achive this culture you need to foster a sense of community and create an environment where grads and apprentices look forward to coming in to work. As a result of this, employee satisfaction increases as does employee engagement and brand reputation.
To ensure that you promote your brand, get recognised for your early careers programmes and encourage the best candidates to apply to you, you must tell the external world about your successes. Creating a strong outward facing brand is essential for gaining recognition for your programmes and Morgan Manley can help you to do this. Whether you need a steady stream of content for a portal or website, a plan to engage with local schools and collages or a targeted campaign during high-profile weeks like National Apprenticeship Week, we can help you.
Whatever your project, Morgan Manley centres its business around creating bespoke solutions that are right for your business. Professional relationships allow us to deliver projects successfully, working closely with businesses to understand their challenges and aspirations. Trust is key to creating these client relationships and so with this in place we can promise that we will always deliver a professional service, every time that we work together.
