If you desire a harvest down the road, it’s best to be planting seeds today. Do you foresee a workforce shortage ahead? Take action now by planting seeds.
Here is a creative approach for future workforce needs—reach out to your local high schools and find ways to get involved so that teachers and students in your community become more familiar with your company.
Many high schools offer the opportunity to host high school interns, and in some cases they will offer a job shadow program.
Students need opportunities to deepen their classroom learning by applying their skills, passions and interests to authentic workplace experiences. Students benefit from early exposure to the world of work, and employers enjoy the energy and enthusiasm that students, interns, and teachers bring to their business.
Think of the possibilities for future harvests—go plant some seeds today.
