By Kristen Harper, Controller and HR Manager at Kenton Brothers, talking about apprenticeship programs for mechanical and installation technicians.
Apprenticeship: a discipline that combines on-the-job training with classroom related instruction to properly prepare an individual for a career.
These program are a benefit to both the employee and company for many reasons:
- They are a cost-effective way for employers to train their employees and employees benefit from paid on the job training.
- Businesses that participate in apprenticeship can make a powerful statement taking on apprentices and training the next generation of workforce.
- Employers have found many advantages to implementing an apprenticeship program at their company, such as increased productivity, loyalty and reliability.
Kenton Brothers is creating partnerships with many local trade schools and colleges to promote keeping talented individuals within our organization and the security industry.
Hands-on knowledge and skills are vital. There is no better way to learn the trade than through this on the job training program. An apprentice program also gives us the ability to implement the “KB Way”. As a service provider, service quality is just as important as the know-how we provide our customers. The importance of communication and giving the standard of service that is expected of a KB employee is key to organizations expectations and standards. We want our customers to feel confident that we are keeping them “All Secure since 1897”!
