Managing talent within your business is critical to ensuring you have a pipeline of employees ready and able to lead your business in the future. The talent development programmes OLT run are designed with this in mind specifically for your trainees including school leavers, apprentices and graduates. Talent development is about motivating and engaging your workforce, aligning them with company culture and building the knowledge, and abilities of employees so they have the skills they need to do the job. The talent development programmes OLT provide help graduates and apprentices to develop and achieve their potential so that they and your business can succeed and grow.
Do you have an annual intake of school leavers, apprentices or graduates into a training scheme? Time is money, therefore inducting your new recruits into your way of working and functioning effectively as part of the team quickly is essential. That can however be challenging when they don’t know each other and may never have been in a professional working environment before. OLT run an induction programme specifically designed to help the new recruits get to know one another and expedite the process of them bonding as a team whilst also improving skills they’ll need in the workplace such as communication, problem-solving, working as part of a team and leadership. The course typically takes place over a few days up to a week.
Is attracting and retaining the best talent is one of the challenges you face when recruiting apprentices and graduates? Is that coupled with trying to find trainees with experience in soft skills such as leadership and team working? Offering qualifications is one solution to ensuring you stand out from other employers whilst benefiting from engaged, highly skilled employees. OLT is an ILM Approved Centre and as such has developed courses specifically for graduates and apprentices to undertake ILM qualifications in leadership, management and teamwork, using a practical learning environment, in order to gain valuable first-hand experience.
