Harper’s registered apprenticeship programs are unique, flexible instruction programs combining job-related credit courses with structured on-the-job learning experiences. They can help companies improve their strategy for hiring a skilled workforce; fill in a skills gap; increase employee loyalty and reduce turnover; diversify the workforce; reduce recruiting costs; and ensure knowledge of seasoned employees is passed down before they retire.
