The Levy is great news for your employees.
It’s a golden opportunity for them to learn new skills, get a qualification, and make that CV look fabulous.
Hopefully, they’ll see you as the benevolent enabler to this, and stay loyal to you, bringing all their new skills into play for your future success.
But this is a fantastic opportunity for your organisation as well, so make sure you get what you need from it too. Whatever your Apprentices are doing, it has to be relevant for your business. Be empowered by the Levy - make sure you get what you need.
Programmes that your employees undertake now have the potential to have a huge impact on your business in the future.
The business projects they undertake need to have workplace relevance. Ensuring that they’re meaningful and relatable now will pay dividends in the future. If they can see how what they’re doing relates directly to them and their role, loyalty increases at the same time as learning.
In seeking our opportunities to develop your staff using the Levy, remember that developing them is also developing your business. Make sure you’re focussing on the areas, skills and capabilities to maximise this opportunity.
