Apprenticeship in Germany

An interesting video of how apprenticeship is used in Germany to attract, develop and retain talent in the company.

By offering apprenticeship, the company provides new hires with a realistic job preview, which is an effective way to determine who will work in this job and who will not. Hence, for the employees who stay on during the apprenticeship, the likelihood for talent retention increases, which then justifies the investment in skills upgrading for the staff as the training investment can be spread across the staff tenure and there is enough time for the learning transfer.

Apprenticeship is not for every industry, but some industries might do well to look into this.
