If you’re reading this post, you probably have staffing on your mind. Manufacturers are always on the lookout for quality talent, and recruiters have been reaching deeper into their toolboxes for different methods of infusing their businesses with superior aptitude and attitude. One strategy that you may want to think about could strengthen your business in more ways than staffing. Consider partnering with a trade school.

How does such a partnership work? Entering into an agreement with a school involves your company providing resources to the school – guest speakers, onsite tours, and financial contributions. For example, the school grants you access and the opportunity to advertise your business at school-related events. This kind of relationship has many potential rewards, but here are three strong possibilities.

1.      Scouting Fresh Talent – And Planting Seeds for the Future

Depending on the specific terms of your partnership with a trade school, you may be able to have an influence on the curriculum at the school. This could range from the ability to make classroom presentations to helping shape areas of focus within trade school programs.

Partnering with a school also gives you tremendous brand exposure. Students that have flourished under programs you’ve helped provide through your contributions are likely to put your company at the top when they make a list of places they’d like to work.

2.      A Hands-On Role in Building a Better Trained Workforce

Depending on the specific terms of your partnership with a trade school, you may be able to have an influence on the curriculum at the school. This could range from the ability to make classroom presentations to helping shape areas of focus within trade school programs.

Let’s say you have noticed recent hires at your company sometimes struggle with math. Relaying this information to your partner’s educators and administrators may inspire them to place a greater emphasis on applied mathematics in their classes. This leaves students more prepared to meet real-world challenges and can eventually deepen your talent pool.

3.      An Enhanced Community Profile

This is the area in which partnering with a trade school could have the broadest impact. Helping the cause of education shows your business is dedicated to making your community a better place to live. Not only will you build your brand, which could lead to better business results, but also, your employees will feel a sense of pride knowing they work for a good corporate citizen. And that helps retention.
