How to Overcome Misconceptions and Unleash Employee Potential


Adapt How We Identify Talent

For too long employee potential has been measured purely by proven skills and experience. Let’s change the perception of talent, by instead defining employees by their ambitions, their passions, and their ‘soft’ skills. This can reveal that the very skills you seek to boost in your workforce, may already be bubbling beneath the surface of your team.

Throw Out the Notion that Apprenticeships are Just for the Young

Outdated perceptions around apprenticeships are holding businesses back from tapping into talent throughout an employees’ professional life.

With more than 80% of employees (81.9%) agreeing that there’s less emphasis placed on training and development as they progress in their career, it’s time to turn this around and bring fresh ambition to the surface.

Unleash Talent Through Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships have great value to offer for the entire workforce. In fact, 77% of all people surveyed by HIT Training said that if they were offered a job with the prospect of doing an apprenticeship to develop their skills, they would in fact take it.

Considering the sector continues to face unfilled vacancies and a workforce feeling overworked – and at times undervalued – employers would be wise to recognise the potential talent nesting within their teams already.
